Roots and Shoots, A Program of the Jane Goodall Institute

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 Goodall

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. Our simple yet holistic approach maximizes youth engagement because projects are driven by the interests and abilities of the participants. Kids are encouraged to develop projects that matter to them.

Arlington, VA, 4245 N. Fairfax Dr., Ste. 600, USA, 22203
To foster respect and compassion for all living things, to promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs and to inspire each individual to take action to make the world a better place for people, animals and the environment.
Key programs & initiatives
The type of projects vary, based on age, interests and community needs, but the common thread across Roots & Shoots service projects is our methodology:

Knowledge: The basis of responsible action. The more a child knows about the community, the better he or she can decide what needs to be done to improve issues of concern.

Compassion: The engine of your project.
Compassion, concern and a desire to make a difference energizes young people to tackle problems they see.

Action: The result of learning and planning. Youth-led groups take action through service projects that show care and concern for people, animals and the environment.

Connection: Roots & Shoots participants become connected to a much larger group of people committed to making a difference in the world around them.

Helping People, Animals and the Environment

This broader definition of community helps young people begin to see the important connections that exist among all living systems. They are learning the importance of including animals and the environment around them in their service to the local community and the world.

The Right Model for Any Group
The Roots & Shoots engages youth in community projects they care about. Our model provides educators, parents and group leaders with a flexible and proven way to engage youth in projects that can accomplish great things.

Our tools and resources, as well as our online information, can help you at every stage along your group's quest to make the world a better place for all living things
