The first Interact club was chartered 5 November 1962 at Melbourne High School, Florida, USA, a few months after the program was approved by the Rotary International Board of Directors. The club and its 39 charter members were sponsored by the Rotary Club of Melbourne.
Interact’s name is a combination of “international” and “action.” Interact clubs are sponsored by Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting. Interact is open to young men and women, ages 12-18.
Our Club's sponsored local Interact Club is situated within the Grace Lutheran College at Rothwell. It is a very active club raising significant funds which are dispersed to many worthwhile projects; majority of which coincide with Rotary Club of Kippa-Ring fundraising initiatives.
EarlyAct is a school service-club for students aged 5-13. Each EarlyAct club is sponsored by a Rotary club in the school district. The mission and operation of EarlyAct are closely linked to the ideals of Rotary and provides the foundation and natural succession into Interact.
EarlyAct provides opportunities for students to gain increased awareness of their community and the world, and to recognize the dignity and worth of each individual. EarlyAct also engages students in character-building activities and prepares them for leadership roles.
Michael Ahillen - Ambassadorial Scholar

"I gave my 27th and final presentation to the Rotary Club of Kippa-Ring, my host club. I loved sharing my experiences from the past ten months with them, discussing the beauty, friendliness, and service I have encountered along the way.
Ashley Broad had some kind words for me. He said, “I wasn’t in the room when the Rotarians decided to start the Ambassadorial Scholar program, but I’d bet that Michael was exactly the type of person they had in mind.”
Thank you, Kippa-Ring, for being such a great host club, and I look forward to staying in touch for years to come.
