Basic Description and Contact Info

Description :

Interact club is the high school version of the Rotary International Club which has 1.2 million members and the largest Rotary Club branch here in downtown Madison. Interact International Club has nearly a half million members from ages 12-18 and from 159 different countries. Our JMM Interact club works with the downtown Rotary club to fulfill it’s motto of “Service Above Self” by doing service projects in the community and the world. Each year we are required by Rotary International to accomplish two community service projects and one international project. We often times raise money for the animal shelter, help at soup kitchens, volunteer around memorial, help at nursing homes, and work at events such as Bratfest and Toys for Tots. Last year we began helping the downtown club with a project called Change HerStory which is aimed to help teens in Ghana better understand and have access to reusable supplies for menstrual cycles. We sold beads that were made by girls at the schools we are helping in order to raise money to buy period kits. Interact club is a great way to help the people around you and also people all over the world. We meet the third Thursday of every month in the Lit Center at lunch. Location and day can sometimes vary so be sure to follow our Facebook page called JMM Interact Club and join the group message.
