Young people in Canada are engaged in Roots & Shoots projects
Roots & Shoots Schools in Canada
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits people, animals and the environment.
Find out more about our newest youth initiatives, including Sustainable Food,Friends of the Watershed and Uncovering Common Ground.
Through experiential learning that promotes leadership skills, team building and critical thinking, Roots & Shoots equips young people to become agents of community change. We offer resources and training so that you can bring Roots & Shoots programming to your class or school.
