The Interact Club of Edina is part of a global network of leaders ages 12-18 that come together to take action in their communities, promote international understanding, and connect with others around the world.  In 2019, there were over 20,000 Interact clubs in over 159 countries!  Interact Clubs are sponsored by local Rotary clubs, who provide mentorship and support for the clubs.  Most Interact clubs are governed by a Board of Directors that organize and carry out projects and activities throughout the year, including one local project, and one international project to enhance global understanding.

The Interact Club of Edina was chartered in 2015, and sponsored by the Rotary Club of Edina and the Edina Morningside Rotary Club.  The Interact Club of Edina is governed by its own 5-person board of directors, including President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Ambassador.  During the school year, the Interact Club holds monthly meetings with their general membership of students, often times carrying out a "done in a day" service project, or hearing a speaker on an important local or international topic.  In addition, the club puts on an annual "Skate to End Polio" event at Braemar Ice Arena to raise awareness about polio eradication, and to raise funds to support the polio eradication cause.  Club leadership are also encouraged to attend meetings of the sponsoring Edina Rotary clubs whenever time allows. For the 2019-20 school year, the Interact Club of Edina Board of Directors is:
 
  • President: Aashna Kumar 
  • Vice President: Kate Wexler
  • Secretary: Julianne Browne
  • Treasurer: Divya Danthuluri
  • Ambassador: TBA
