A Rotary sponsored service club intended for students age 14 to 18, Interact gives young people an opportunity to participate in fun, meaningful service projects. Interact clubs perform at least two projects a year, one serving the community and the other furthering international understanding — as a matter of fact, Interact stands for International Action. The first Interact club started in Melbourne, Florida in 1962 as a result of an effort began by RI President Harold Thomas (1959-60). Today, more than 150,000 young people in about 100 countries belong to some 6,500 clubs. Ukiah High School's Interact club began in 1995 with three students, and hasgrown to over 30 active members.

Ukiah's Interact club has been active in a variety of service projects, from collecting clothes for children in Russia and Africa, to collecting toiletries for hurricane victims in the Caribbean, to collecting food and toys for the Ukiah Christmas Effort, to providing solar stoves for the refugees of Darfur, to walking dogs at the Milo foundation. In 1999, the Interact Club received the MCOVY (Mendocino County Outstanding Volunteer of the Year) award for all of their service activities. Since 2000, Interact's major fund raiser has been parking cars at the 12th District Fair in August each year; since 2002 the club has picked up litter along northbound Highway 101 from Perkins Street to Ackerman Creek each month — in return, John Bogner (who adopted that section of highway) treats the participating members to lunch. Following is a listing of the Ukiah High Interact Presidents as well as the Ukiah Rotary and South Ukiah Rotary advisors to the Interact club.

*Ellen started the Ukiah High Interact Club with the help of Ukiah High teacher Dan Stearns after Ellen attended RYLA in the summer of 1995. Dan attended RYLA in the summer of 1990, and returned to RYLA yearly as an advisor. He returned to Ukiah High in 1995 as a teacher, and was the club's first faculty advisor. Dan was followed by Dwight Cawthon who has been the faculty advisor since 1996, and Dwight has built Interact into one of the most active clubs at Ukiahi.
