Interact Lights Up Rotary

District 5170 (California, USA) is home to over 6,500
Interactors in more than 115 private and public schools,
who learn Service Above Self through international and
community service projects. They raise approximately
$100,000 yearly and complete over 132,000 hours
of community service. Interactors will explain how
leadership, ethics, and service work together to promote
international action, and you’ll learn the secret to district
5170’s widespread success.
