Interact clubs empower young people ages 12 to 18 to take action in their community, develop leadership skills, and gain a global perspective. Every year we celebrate the accomplishments of an estimated half a million Interact club members during World Interact Week.
#WorldInteractWeek is celebrated every year during the week of 5 November to commemorate the founding of the first Interact club in 1962. This year World Interact Week is 31st October - 06th November and Interactors around the world will be taking action and sharing how their Interact clubs are making a difference in their communities.
In 2022, Interact is celebrating its 60th anniversary!
To mark this occasion with Interactors and Rotarians around the world, Interact clubs, in partnership with their sponsor Rotary clubs, are encouraged to participate in joint projects during World Interact Week.

World Interact Week is an excellent opportunity for clubs to publicize, promote, and inform the community about the great work accomplished by its members. Clubs should encourage community members to get involved with Interact projects.

In the past, RI required Interact clubs to successfully complete specific activities in order to receive recognition for World Interact Week. Now, Interact clubs and their sponsor Rotary clubs have the opportunity to explore a variety of ways to participate in World Interact Week.

Rotarians and Interactors will be able to decide the best way to celebrate World Interact Week. This may include completing one, two or an entire week’s worth of activities. After the club has completed their activities, the Rotary club or district Interact chair can download and fill out the Certificate of Recognition for presentation.
Here are some examples of activities Interact clubs can do for recognition:
  • Conduct a joint project with a Rotary club.
  • Plan a literacy day during World Interact Week.
  • Invite Interactors to Rotary club meetings and vice versa.
  • Give a presentation about Interact to a Rotary club that does not sponsor an Interact club.
  • Publicize Interact projects to local media.
  • Encourage cross-promotion between Interact, RYLA , Rotaract, and other community youth organizations.
  • Partner with international Interact clubs.
  • Establish mentoring programs between Rotaractors and Interactors.
  • Introduce potential members to Interact by inviting them to a meeting or a project.
This year...join the virtual World Interact Week party to celebrate the power of Interact, featuring a special guest appearance, exciting new announcements, and an opportunity to connect with Interactors around the world. 
How will you celebrate? In addition to joining the virtual party, take action with your Interact club with these ideas to celebrate World Interact Week - here are three ways you can join the party: 
  • Share how your clubs champion diversity, equity, and inclusion across their projects, clubs, and communities in the 2022 Interact Awards. Submit videos, photos, and essays. Learn more and nominate your Interact clubs by December 1st. Visit  or click here for more information 
  • Work with your sponsor club to complete a certificate of recognition to highlight the positive impact during World Interact Week. Remember, social media promotion of a World Interact Week activity by your Interact club is an optional goal towards achieving the Rotary Citation for Interact Clubs. Use this worksheet to track your progress toward the Rotary Citation for Interact Clubs throughout the year. (
  • District 7030 would like to encourage all Interact clubs to obtain a World Interact Week Certificate from your Sponsor Club. This certificate will recognize Interact club activities during World Interact Week. Clubs may even want to hold a ceremony showcasing your certificates at the end of World Interact Week 2022.
  • Check out the World Interact Week event on Facebook for updates and opportunities to celebrate the 60th Anniversary milestone event as World Interact Week approaches. Share your celebrations with #WorldInteractWeek and RSVP to the event for the most up-to-date events calendar and for access to live virtual events throughout the week. 
So let's all connect with Interactors during World Interact Week 2022 and share the power of Interact!
