As one of the most significant and fast-growing programmes of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are now involved in Interact.

Other Rotary clubs are seriously considering forming an Interact club, as it provides an ideal introduction to Rotary - both for the young people and for their parents (and teachers!).
