Interact Clubs

Rotary Club of Goodyear PebbleCreek is the proud sponsor of three Interact Clubs in the Agua Fria School District. We have active clubs at Estrella Foothills, Desert Edge, and Canyon View. In fall of 2024, we will begin sponsorship of Junior Interact clubs in two of our local middle schools. Interact clubs offer leadership development and service opportunities to all youth ages 12-18.  Like Rotary, our motto is “Service Above Self.” 
The three Interact clubs are regular volunteers at our road cleanup each month and Love Our Schools projects plus participate in their own service projects..  Our Rotary club sponsors two students from each high school to attend the annual Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) camp in Prescott, AZ.
The Interact name represents a combination of the words “International” and “Action”. As part of Rotary District 5495, this name aptly describes the dynamic and rapidly growing group of more than 80 Arizona high school and middle school service clubs. Each Interact Club is sponsored by a local Rotary Club and includes an international dimension. Interact District 5495’s signature international service project is Interact Crutches 4 Africa Project — in partnership with the Rotarian Crutches 4 Africa nonprofit organization. Our Interact clubs each year work together to collect crutches, walkers, wheelchairs and other mobility devices that ship in 40-ft shipping containers to our International partners in Kenya for distribution there to those most in need of these mobility devices in the Rift Valley of Kenya.  In 2023 our Interact district successfully sent our sixth team of our top Interactors as Arizona Interact Ambassadors to Kenya for two weeks in July, and our second Interact Ambassadors Team to Central Mexico.
