John Cooper High School Interact Club 

The Rotary Club of The Woodlands sponsors the Interact Club at the John Cooper School (JCS) under the guidance of Rotarians' Bill Friebel and Jeff Early in addition to the JCS advisors, Michael Maher (Head of School) and Deb Parks (Upper School Social Science Teacher). Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 14 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.

Each year, Interact completes at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of:

  1. Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
  2. Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
  3. Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
  4. Advancing international understanding and goodwill

As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are involved in Interact.

The JCS Interact Club has a very active Board and membership with a full schedule.
