Interact is an official program of Rotary International, in which students of high school age are encouraged to engage in Community Service activities similar to those done by Rotary Club members themselves. But while the Rotarians provide guidance to the the Interact Club members, these high school students decide on their own just what projects they wish to engage in, and where or who they wish to receive the benefits of their efforts. In this way, the Interact Club not only provides real, tangible service opportunities for students, but also teaches those students who partake invaluable skills in leadership and management. Some of the local projects undertaken by the Commack High School Interact Club include:
  • End Hunger in Kings Park - The annual food packing event co-sponsored by our club;
  • Soles4Souls (shoe drive);
  • Food Drives;
  • Annual Community Yard Sale;
  • Sporting Goods for Cuba (sponsored by our club and greatly assisted by the Interactors); and
  • Their club does much of the work in maintaining the Healing Garden originally set up by our club.
They also hosted the 2018 Interact RISE Conference.
