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.
