MBR Youth Programs

MBR Interact Club

Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self.

The Metro Bethesda Rotary Club is the sponsor of a new Interact Club, a community-based club open to all high school students (14-18 years old) with current academic attendance in any educational setting (public, private, religious, home-school, non-profit, for-profit, online).

The MBR Interact Club was founded on March 3, 2020, after the four founding officers attended a District 7620 Rotary Youth Leadership Award event in February. Through service work, they will continue to learn new skills, build confidence, form friendships, have fun, and become dynamic leaders in their schools and community.
