“Every generation, civilization is invaded by barbarians - we call them 'children'.” ― Hannah Arendt
To help the next generation be good stewards of our communities and globe, district 7570 has many opportunities to engage youth and encourage them to live the Four Way Test.



Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self. Find out how serious leadership can be seriously fun.  Interact clubs are sponsored by local Rotary clubs and can be middle school, high school or community-based.  A list of our current Interact Clubs with contact information is available below.  Don't see a club in your area?

Earlyact clubs bring together young people in elementary school to promote goodwill, understanding and peace through active participation of its students so that with committed citizenship and effective leadership they may improve the quality of life of their school, local and global communities.  Earlyact is not a Rotary International program but sponsored at the district level.  Like Interact Clubs, an Earlyact Club is sponsored by a local Rotary club. 

To learn more about Earlyact and how to start a club in your local elementary school or community, see the document below or e-mail to get started.
