New Orleans, LA: Roots & Shoots North America Training Summit

Starting at 8:00 a.m.

From October 21 to 22, 2011, the Jane Goodall Institute will host the second annual Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots North America Training Summit for community leaders and service learning professionals.

Through fun, interactive workshops and activities, the Summit provides participants with opportunities to:

Celebrating Peace for All – People, Animals and the Environment

Each year, with Dr. Jane as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, Roots & Shoots members celebrate their projects, and how their impacts are creating peace for all – people, animals and the environment. 

Write the Next Chapter of Hope for Endangered Species

Around the globe, as many species are at a crossroads, Roots & Shoots members are doing projects to raise awareness about endangered species and the importance of biodiversity. 

Celebrating 20 Years of Making the World a Better Place

Over the last two decades, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots has grown into a worldwide network of young people dedicated to making the world a better place. 

Bringing Meaningful Service to the Classroom

With the Roots & Shoots Service Learning curriculum teachers now have the tools they need to align their students’ classroom learning with meaningful service experiences.

One Million Hours of Service

Through their service learning campaigns, Roots & Shoots members are working to hit a goal of reaching one million hours of service donated to their communities. Every hour counts. 

Service Project Reflection

Two months ago, I was trekking through the Cedar River Watershed in Seattle, Wash. I was delighted to be spending a week of my summer with fellow Roots & Shoots Youth Leaders at the 2011 Youth Leadership Retreat. Every year, the retreat offers valuable training through workshops and service. This year’s service project in Seattle allowed Youth Leaders to study the effectiveness of local watershed conservation projects. Currently, participants are developing a PSA from the video footage that we captured during our visit.

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.

Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots 20th Anniversary

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.
