Oregon City Interact Now Recruiting!

What is Interact?

CAIS is the home base for the youth-lead community service club Oregon City Interact. Interact is a Rotary sponsored youth organization. You can learn more about Interact and download a registration form here.

Information on the Interact Clubs nationwide can be found here. 

Our club meets during lunch once a week and once or twice a week after school. We also meet to complete community projects around Clackamas County and the Portland Metro area.

 

What does Interact do?

OC Interact is currently working with the Downtown Oregon City Association on a project for Railroad Avenue and with the City on a project with revitalizing a local park. We are always doing campus improvement projects and Rotary projects such as clean-ups, planting trees and blood drives. Club members in previous years at CAIS have earned us recognition for Rotary International and was nominated in the Best of Oregon City awards last year. Students can pick a project and focus on that one specifically or help with everything depending on time and interest.

 

We are also an important part of Oregon City School district as many of the PTAs have come to rely on our help for events at Candy Lane, Jennings Lodge, Holcomb, John McLoughlin and Redland schools.

 

What can your student do to get involved?

Our club needs more members to be strong and help the community. There is a place for all skills and strengths in our club and every student is welcome. If you feel your student would be a good fit or if you are want more information please contact me at megan.christopher@orecityk12.or.us. Your student can always come by a lunch meeting in my classroom on Wednesday to check things out as well. Time spent working on Interact projects can go towards a student’s personalized learning credits required for graduation. Beyond teaching students leadership, teamwork and the value of service to others, this opportunity can also open doors for international travel, scholarships and letters of recommendation for college and careers in the future.

 

Please contact me with any questions and I hope to see your student at a meeting soon!

Thank you,

Secondary Social Studies, Interact Advisor
