What is Roots & Shoots?

What is Roots & Shoots?

Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem very weak, but to reach the light, they can break open brick walls. Imagine that the brick walls are all the problems we have inflicted on our planet. Hundreds of thousands of roots & shoots, hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls. We CAN change the world.

- Dr. Jane

The Roots & Shoots program is about making positive change happen—for our communities, for animals and for the environment. With tens of thousands of young people in almost 100 countries, the Roots & Shoots network connects youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action. Through service projects, youth-led campaigns and an interactive website, Roots & Shoots members are making a difference across the globe.

Tornado Relief Fundraiser "Race to Fill the Bucket"

In early June our Roots & Shoots group sponsored a fundraiser for the Moore Public Schools Tornado Relief Fund. The funds will be used to aid students, families and staff of the Moore Public Schools who were affected by the May 20th, 2013 tornado in Oklahoma.
Great job everyone. We raised $300!
