             The Interact Club is an organization of students in South Lakes High School where students participate in monthly meetings to help shape the community into a more welcoming space, and simply give back to those in need. Club leaders organize coat drives, food donations, and show appreciation towards underrated school faculty. 


  Recent Projects!

When running a student-paced club, students can come up with their own projects and ideas. The Interact Club has created many projects this year, but their most recent and biggest project is “Project Heartfelt”. In its development, students have held meetings in order to come up with a plan together about making blankets for those in need and who are hospitalized. All the materials were bought with the money that the students had gathered by selling hot chocolate and cookies. The Interact Club has also come up with a project called “Unsung Heros” where students write cards to show their appreciation to school faculty, such as bus drivers, lunch ladies, and custodians at South Lakes HS. 


Ashley Wang, one of the current leaders of the Interact Club, highlighted that “you can make new friends and learn new skills.” Not only does this club help students participate more in the community, but can help build an identity for them and find what they are truly passionate about. Students should join this club because they can earn service hours for school, make new friends or use the club as a way to hang out with friends after school. Students can learn new communication skills and learn how to help people in many ways. Students can also use this club as a way to find their passion and take the role of a leader, and it looks good on a college application!
