Drug Free Divide supports youth on the Divide by providing multiple opportunities to become involved in our local and school communities and beyond to the county and state communities as well. In 2013, Community Service after-school Club from previous years have joined forces under a new name of an internationally recognized Club:
GSHS INTERACT Club
This club is sponsored and advised by both the Georgetown Rotary Club and Drug Free Divide (DFD). The INTERACT Club is a service organization that broadens our student’s circle of influence, raises self-esteem, and empowers individuals to make a difference in this confusing world we share. INTERACT Club is open to students 12-18.
Besides the chance to be on several community organization boards as representatives of the Divides youth voice, this club can provide students with:
Participation in projects to put on resumes, and college, scholarships and job applications. Additionally, they will have professional references from staff and project managers.
Public speaking opportunities, originating and planning large or small scale team projects outside of school, opportunities to develop leadership skills and meet new people.
Required community service projects.
Work on over-lapping projects and trainings, as well as collaboration with the Peer Advocate Class.
Experience working with grants, survey strategies, evaluation of data, international youth organizations and worldwide issues that concern young people.
