Interact clubs empower young people ages 12 to 18 to take action in their community, develop leadership skills, and gain a global perspective.  Interact is a student led and driven program of Rotary International that is designed to engage and motivate our youth to make a difference and have fun with like-minded peers in doing so. 
 
During World Interact Week - scheduled for November 4 - 10, 2019 - we celebrate and highlight the accomplishments of an estimated half million Interact club members around the world, including those at Schaumburg's Frost Jr. High!
 

Schaumburg A.M. Rotary is seeking outstanding local high school students to participate in the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) program retreat (3 nights / 4 days - Thursday - Sunday) scheduled to be held at Edwards Camp & Conference Center in East Troy, Wisconsin, located near Alpine Valley. 
 
Students may choose from any one of the following sessions -
 
Spring Retreat #1 - March 12 - 15, 2020
Spring Retreat #2 - April 2 - 5, 2020
 
The purpose of RYLA is to recognize young people who have demonstrated leadership skills or show potential to be leaders and provide them with an opportunity to explore and further develop these skills with others with similar capabilities. Student feedback on this experience is that it is always outstanding.  Take a look at the video below to learn more about the RYLA retreat experience.

For more than 30 years, Rotary and our partners have driven the effort to eradicate polio worldwide.
 
Our PolioPlus program was the first initiative to tackle global polio eradication by vaccinating children on a massive scale. As a core partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, Rotary focuses on advocacy, fundraising, volunteer recruitment, and awareness-building.
 
Rotary members have contributed $1.9 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by governments to contribute more than $8 billion to the effort.
 
 
 
Today we warmly welcomed 19/20 Dist. 6440 Governor Suzanne Gibson for her official club visit (#54 out of 70+ clubs in the district that she will visit during her year as Governor.)
 
Accompanying Suzanne were her husband, Mark Gibson, who is also a Dist 6440 Asst. Governor, and Bill Kmiecik, our club’s Asst. Governor and Dist. 6440 Governor Nominee Designate for 22/23.

Operation Warm Winter Coats
 
You can make a difference in your community by providing a colorful, high quality, new winter coat to a child in need.
 
A new winter coat offers an economically disadvantaged child -
  • physical & emotional warmth
  • confidence to socialize & succeed
  • hope for a brighter future
While a donation in any amount is appreciated, $20 will provide one warm winter coat for a child from a low income family struggling to make ends meet.
 
 
Your donation will be held in the Schaumburg A.M. Rotary account at Operation Warm for future coat purchase/donation.
 
Thank you for giving the gift of warmth, confidence and hope to kids in need!
