Interact clubs are sponsored by a local Rotary Club and are part of the Rotary International family. Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding.
Leadership is an essential aspect of Rotary—and we offer both clubs and programs to help emerging leaders develop their skills. Through these groups, participants strengthen their leadership skills, serve their communities, increase their world understanding, build friendships, and more.
The Interact Club is one of the more active clubs at MRHS. We meet every Wednesday after school in room 113. During the 2014-2015 school year we have collected over 1500 toothbrushes that were sent to many countries worldwide to improve dental hygiene, sponsored a food drive to benefit CUMAC, volunteered at events to support Passaic County CASA (court appointed special advocates), sponsored collections for local families and every week we have packed food items for the weekend for 60 students for students at Paterson School 28.
