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.

Roots & Shoots Mini-Grant

With our Roots & Shoots Mini-Grant funds, we were able to purchase water bottles for
 every student in Grades 5-8. In our first meeting, we learned about the environmental impact of purchasing bottled water.
Students requested that water coolers with a place to fill bottles be purchased for our school.
Mrs. Brooks, our principal has gotten approval for two new water fountains!
Thank you to The Jane Goodall Institute!
