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 nearly 100 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits people, animals and the environment.
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.
