**Rescheduled to November 5th, same time/place**
Parents and teens/tweens are invited to an organizational/informational meeting planned in two weeks for a new youth service club that the Rotary Club of West Seattle is organizing. The announcement:
West Seattle Rotary Club is excited to announce our new Interact club. It is 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. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves.
Through their service activities, Interactors learn the importance of
· Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
· Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
· Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
· Advancing international understanding and goodwill
Interact has a membership of more than 250,000 youth in 11,000+ clubs worldwide. It’s one of Rotary’s fastest growing programs.
Interact clubs are self-governing and self- supporting and can be either school or community based. We, with West Seattle Rotary’s support, will be a community based club.
Interact’s name is a combination of the words international and action. With clubs in over 120 countries and geographical areas, Interact is truly an international phenomenon.
Parents and students, please come to our information night:
Date: October 29th, 2013, Tuesday
Time: 6:30 pm
Location: 4555 Delridge Way SW (Southwest Youth and Family Services)
