What is Interact?
On the surface level Interact seems to be just a student-governed international service club for individuals from ages 12 to 18. As students become more involved they discover Interact is much more. Interact is an amazing opportunity for high school students who are passionate about helping others to make a difference in the community. As the largest club on campus, we have something for everyone to be a part of. Through our international and community projects we strive to provide the less-fortunate with basic needs that we take for granted because what happens over there matters over here. From working with Sunnyvale Community Services to providing food for impoverished families or cleaning up Homestead High’s campus and surrounding areas, we try to be active and give back to the wonderful community we are fortunate enough to live in.
For Interact, community service is not just about helping the community, it is much more. Interact is about finding more about one’s self and finding a true motivation and passion to help others. Interact is about family, and getting to know and care for everyone in the family. Interact is about Service Above Self.
In Interact we do not simply build “real-life” skills of Interacting and communicating with others in the community, we build character.
