Interact is a project which is structured around social change. The group is sponsored by Luton Rotary to develop and create social change both locally and internationally through social action.
The group is structured in a hierarchy and is run by an elected president who works with his vice president to chair meetings. There is also a junior vice president, a secretary and a treasurer. This structure allows young people to develop an understanding of the employment sector and how organisations are run in order to create effective outcomes. In addition young people develop confidence, self-worth, meet new people and develop a range of skills to help them advance in life.
The group works together to create and then undertake social action projects. This provides the opportunity for young people to connect with community leaders, develop leadership skills and make international connections. The project also develops budgeting, team work and communication skills. Young people develop a sense of responsibility and ownership as tasks are delegated to team members in order to see a project through to completion.

The project has seen several successful projects from infancy to completion since its creation, including the development and implementation of a tuck shop at TOKKO to fundraise for the ongoing projects. The group are currently working with a local farm on restoration work to upkeep the residential section of the farm for other young people to use. In addition to this they are looking to become involved in an international project later this year.
This project provides a fantastic transition from the final phase of NCS for young people who are seeking to continue developing the skills learnt in order to create social change.
