The Rotary Club of Johor Bahru (RCJB) organised an Interact Leaders Training Session at SMK (P) Sultan Ibrahim (SIGS) for its Interact clubs, namely SMK (P) Sultan Ismail (SIGS), SMK IJ Convent, SMK Dato’ Jaafar and SMK Sultan Ismail with the absence of SMK Aminuddin Baki.
63 students comprising 33 club officers from the 4 Interact Clubs and 30 SIGS Interact club members attended the Training Seminar.
The objective of the Seminar was to guide and teach the student leaders how to manage their clubs, lead their members and improve their clubs. They were guided on how to carry their own community service projects.
The Seminar’s Interactive Sessions and Workshops were conducted by RCJB members who volunteered their time to help.
Secondary school students get involved with Rotary through Interact clubs which are sponsored by Rotary Clubs and are managed by the students through their elected Board of Directors and club officers. They are guided by their Schools’ Teacher Advisors and Rotarian Advisors.
Interact clubs must carry out one community service project in their schools and one outside the schools to help the community every year.
RCJB also organised a Career Fair Talk for interested students, and speakers from several professions such as accounting, engineering, medicine, nursing, information technology and human resources shared their experiences and information on their professions with the students. This was followed by a Q & A session.
The Rotaract Club of Johor Bahru which is open to young people between 18 to 30 years old also helped with the Training Seminar and Career Fair Talk. The Club is also sponsored by RCJB.
