Vocational Youth Council (VYC)/INTERACT

The Vocational Youth Clubs Council is made up of JVS students who are members of vocational youth, leadership and social clubs.  An interested student may apply to become a member of this group and can help plan a calendar of school-wide activities.  In previous years, the Council has participated in dances, food drives, Open House, and in-house and outside JVS special activities and events.


INTERACT is a Rotary-sponsored service club for JVS students.  The INTERACT Club carries out at least two service projects yearly, one that serves the school or the community, and another that furthers international understanding.  The LCJVS INTERACT Club is sponsored by the Elyria Rotary Club, which provides guidance on a continuing basis.  In addition, Interactors often form a service partnership with the sponsoring Rotarians, lending their enthusiastic support to a variety of Rotary projects and events.
