Interact brings together more than 250,000 young people from 12-18 years, distributed in 11,000 clubs in more than 120 countries. Since the founding of the first Interact club in 1962 in Florida, the youth wing of the NGO Rotary International continues to develop. Interact clubs are autonomous and represent the fastest growing in Rotary. However, they are still little present in France and ours is only the eighth of the hexagon. The creation of our club was ambitious and its future was uncertain. Today, after three years of existence, new members continue to join us and contribute to our dynamism.
Under the supervision of the Rotary Club of Aix en Provence Mazarin, in the district 1760, we regularly carry out multiple and varied activities throughout the year. Thanks to the involvement of the founding president, Marie Petit and his successor Loan Laux, more than 4000 euros have been donated to various associations and thus serve the humanitarian cause. Particularly in France, we were able to support research against AIDS and encourage the accompaniment of children hospitalized with serious illnesses. Interact also acts for international charities with financial assistance to Nepal"s children this year.
We act to "be a gift to the world."
We are currently fifteen and nothing would have materialized without the dedicated participation of our loyal members. We are bound by common values: solidarity, altruism and generosity.
We are always looking for young people willing to participate in our actions and to their organization. If you share our values, join us. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information using the website page for this purpose. Secondly, you can attend one of our monthly meetings where we will be delighted to welcome you soon.
President of the Aix-en-Provence Interact Club.
