Most great social and political movements, from civil rights to peace campaigns, have begun on college campuses. The university environment, rich in educational resources, access to information and the enthusiasm of thousands of young adults, creates fertile ground for activism to take root and to grow. The Roots & Shoots program, with its peaceful activism, fits easily into any college environment, empowering students like you to make a real difference in the world by taking positive action. Get involved today.

Roots & Shoots helps bring you and your child closer together with community service projects that are fun, safe and easy for the whole family to rally around. Start a project together.
Would you like your students to be more excited about what you're teaching? Have you looked for opportunities to connect what your class is studying with real-life situations? Perhaps you'd like to encourage civic responsibility, or have thought about incorporating a more global perspective in your activities. Whether you're a classroom teacher or informal educator, Roots & Shoots can help you accomplish these goals and more, through service learning! Teach with Roots & Shoots.
Do you lead a youth group such as a scout troop, religious club or environmental action organization that is already active in community service projects? Perhaps you coach or teach a group of kids in skills that aren¿t traditionally associated with service projects, such as dance, art, karate or cooking, but you've thought about how you could showcase these talents and benefit the community at the same time. With Roots & Shoots, we can help your group engage in youth-led projects that are fun for all participants and that make a difference in your community. Our method adapts to any group, no matter what your charter, mission, interest or size. Lead on.
Roots & Shoots works hard to successfully grow a generation of global citizens. To maintain and build the Roots & Shoots network and our educational programs on the ground we rely on the help and support of our members, individual donors, corporations and foundations and other organizations. The ways that we can work together are diverse. Collaborate with us.
