Speakers - Andrea Sanchez and Eric Qu
We were joined by District Interact Chair Uche Okugo and our Glenforest SS Interact Club co Presidents Andrea and Eric this week.
Uche gave a brief summary of the status of the clubs in our District and also what's new on his committee.
Andrea and Eric explained that due to COVID and the limitation of meeting in school, the Interact Club has expanded its activities to all of the Peel Regions outside school to "host events and raise awareness about the current humanitarian crises".
They will operate the 2 clubs under Interact-YFGA (Youth in Global Action), with the school run club hosting Talent Shows, Holiday Photo Booth, Food Sale etc. when they can return to school full time, and use the community run club as a "charity gaming club" to host gaming tournaments as fundraisers. Their recent January 1-2 tournament was a big success with 90 members signed up and
150 people viewing the event.
We are so pleased to see these young people so committed to the Rotary values and are active with their clubs. Once we have the dates arranged we will host another interview workshop for their members to help them with tips on securing summer jobs, and will wait to see how we can give them support with their future activities.
