Roots & Shoots
Join the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) and Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots as we celebrate International Youth Day!
For the past two decades, Dr. Jane Goodall and JGI have supported the efforts of young people across the globe who are making this world a better place for people, animals and the environment through Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, JGI’s international youth program.
It has been one month since I started as the Fellow. I came to this position after being involved with a
Roots & Shoots Youth Leadership Council. Having the opportunity to spend time with the youth leaders, I
have come to learn what an incredible group of individuals they are - enthusiastic, passionate and inspiring.
One of the projects that I was extremely excited to help lead is the annual Global Youth Campaign.
Twenty years ago, Dr. Jane Goodall and a group of Tanzanian students started what has become an international movement of young people dedicated to creating a better world. Today in more than 120 countries, hundreds of thousands of Roots & Shoots members work together on youth-led service projects to improve communities and to make the world better for people, animals and the environment we all share.
Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots, the environmental and humanitarian youth program of the Jane Goodall Institute, gathers young leaders and their adult mentors for leadership trainings throughout the year. Training with the tools and resources necessary to plan their Roots & Shoots projects, these leaders have a positive impact on their communities by improving the environment and make the world a better place for people and animals.
