Woodbridge Together Interact Club, a subset of the Rotary Club of Woodbridge, is a service organization that focuses on community growth and wellness. Anyone ages 12-18 living in Woodbridge is welcome to join our student-run initiative. Led by a group of juniors and seniors at Amity, all projects are created and directly facilitated by us. Woodbridge Together was created because we believe that the community in Woodbridge can be stronger. Our goal is to have the residents of Woodbridge invested in each other and invested in our town. There are few places to congregate in our town, and now with the current pandemic, we are all more distanced than we have ever been. This takes tolls on all of us, but together we can pull through. Woodbridge Together will work with business, organizations, and the people in our town to further and strengthen our bond and community outreach. Each project will focus on the residents engaging in these community activities.
