Roots & Shoots is a powerful way for you to make a difference, and a great addition to any resume or application.

Directly address the intersection of climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental inequity. Design your own project based on what your community needs and what you’re passionate about. Lead by example, and make the change that previous generations couldn’t.

There are 4 steps to every Roots & Shoots project.

  1. Get Inspired
  2. Map Your Community
  3. Take Action
  4. Celebrate Your Impact!
