Camillus, Solvay, Geddes Rotary InteractA PROPOSAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTERACT CLUB
In 2013 The Camillus, Solvay, Geddes Rotary Club voted to help organize an Interact club serving High School Aged youth. We are currently in the discussion stage with four area High Schools; West Genesee, West Hill. Solvay, and Bishop Ludden. We are proposing to establish a community wide Interact club with chapters in each of the schools.
The focus of the club is to build leadership skills and a social consciousness that helps build community. Youth plan, develop, and implement their own projects. Rotary International provides an annual theme which may be used to guide the direction of the annual events. The Community club represented by representatives from each of the school chapters meet periodically to establish community wide goals. Each school chapter is left to establish their own annual agenda in coordination with the central clubs themes and goals. The periodic meetings could be done through telecommunications and or in person at a convenient location. The chapter will meet under the direction of a proctor who would be the liaison to the Camillus, Solvay, Geddes Rotary, and selected by the school. School classrooms will house the meetings and held after school hours. Meetings would last ½ hour, and function as a planning and organizational meeting to establish events, fund raisers, and projects. Students would be selected through a volunteer basis to chair individual events.
At the beginning of each school year. The Rotary Interact club would be presented as an option for students to participate in. Our Rotary club will provide the sponsorship of the event and assist in any way possible to assist the chapters and the Community club. Such assistance could include a small stipend for the instructors, transportation, and mentor ship.
We are planning for the School year of 2015.
