Roots & Shoots North America Summit

Are you a teacher who is interested in incorporating opportunities for your students with your classroom curriculum?
Do you have students who want to learn about and impact the world beyond their textbooks?
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.
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.
