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.
