Purpose of Interact:
INTERACT is a Rotary International affiliate youth service club offering fun with peers and meaningful service opportunities to High School teens. INTERACT stands for INTERnational ACTion and promotes connection between teens in more than 8,700 clubs in countries all over the world, spreading
international understanding and fellowship through some activities while offering service closer to home with other efforts.
Our Mission Statement:
Members of Travis High School INTERACT are asked to promote humanitarian service, goodwill, and high ethical standards when interacting with others in their school, community, country, and within the human family globally. We will be working with leaders in our community from both Sugar Land & Richmond Rotary International Club who are our sponsors. We will also keep in touch with U of H Rotaract club who will serve as mentors to our juniors and seniors.
Through participation in the Interact Club, its active members may be nominated to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA). RYLA is a leadership development program run by Rotary 10 days long which include presentations, activities, and workshops that cover a variety of topics such as: Leadership fundamentals and ethics, communication skills, problem solving and conflict management, & community and global citizenship.
Students will also have an opportunity to apply for the Foreign Exchange Program through the Rotary Clubs. Through this program, students will have the opportunity to travel to a different country of their choice and be housed/hosted by a Rotary member in that region. If the student would like to learn the language, the local Rotary club would also provide lessons.
If interested in becoming a member of this world-changing club, fill out the membership application form and come to one of our meetings (held in Rm E 111). See announcments for upcoming club meeting dates. There should also be an announcement on T-RAV TV and our school's twitter within the same week our meeting will be held.
