Roots & Shoots Summit

It’s my favorite time of the year—leaves are turning and it’s time for the Roots & Shoots North
America Summit. I love our Summits because Roots & Shoots members know that giving back
should be fun. More than just a conference, the yearly event is a celebration of the community
impact that members have through their projects and volunteering.

Greetings from the 2011-12 Roots & Shoots Youth Leadership Fellow!

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.
