Joining Interact

Why You Should Join Interact

It can be hard to make friends at a school as big as Cal High if you’re a freshman or a new student, especially over Zoom. A club like Interact helps with that. While Interact is a volunteer club, their meetings and service events help you grow, meet a lot of new people, and form friendships you might not have otherwise had. They bring together different types of people and help them to bond over a common interest: helping others. Joining Interact helps build social skills and friendships. Just this year alone there have been a lot of community-building events, like the Among Us bonding event over Zoom.

Serving the community is Interact’s main purpose. Different events, each gives back to the community in a creative way. One example is their Rocks for Positivity Event, where Interactors were able to personalize rocks for their community and spread them around their neighborhood. The rocks had inspirational messages such as, “Be Yourself” and “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Rocks were put on local trails, around the community, and other local areas. There was also an event where Interactors made alphabet kits to give to kids who don’t have access to additional tutoring or education.

Distance learning can often be overwhelming for many of us and having a positive and helpful environment is crucial. A club like Interact isn’t just for volunteering, it's also a place where you can meet new people and have fun. Interact is a versatile club and that's what makes it unique. At every meeting, Interactors are placed into social breakout rooms where they can play fun games, have conversations, and hang out. At events, Interactors can also socialize with each other and have fun. In this remote setting, we don’t always have the opportunity to interact with people and get to share our ideas, but Interact is a place where you can socialize with fellow students.

Being a part of Interact has many opportunities and rewards. With fifty hours of community service, Interact members can receive a stole at graduation for their time dedicated to helping others. There are opportunities to meet new people, do fun activities, and much more. Interact has lots to offer for anybody at Cal High, whether you enjoy making things or being directly involved with the community. There is truly something for everyone!
