Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

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 animals, people and the environment.
