Amplifying Partnerships

We Look Good Together - Join Roots & Shoots to Amplify Our Work as a Team!

When young people are empowered to use their voice and take action, transformational change occurs in their communities and in themselves. We want you to be a part of it.

Roots & Shoots is a global youth-powered program of the Jane Goodall Institute created in 1991 by Dr. Jane Goodall. It is led by millions of compassionate young people (as well as educators and mentors) who want to make a difference in their communities. The program offers resources, training, support, and leadership development skills that grow compassionate change-makers and create real positive change in all 50 United States and over 60 countries around the world, and growing.

Amplifying partnerships allow us to work with like-minded organizations and companies to leverage our shared audiences, resources, philosophies and ideas to make magic happen. Past partnerships have included Skype in the Classroom, Google, the United Nations, Lady Gaga’s Born this Way Foundation, Nat Geo Education and more. Our partnerships help grow a movement of young people who practice compassion, determination, and collaboration to build a better world for all.


Roots & Shoots has a collective network (across our U.S. and global chapters) of millions of individuals through our direct media platforms and channels, coupled with that of the Jane Goodall Institute and Dr. Jane Goodall.

CASE STUDY: Skype in the Classroom

In April of 2019 for Earth Day, the Jane Goodall Institute‘s (JGI) Roots & Shoots program partnered with Microsoft and Skype in the Classroom to offer two live broadcasts with Dr. Jane Goodall and the JGI team!

  • There were more than 12,500 student questions posted during the live chat across the two events.
  • Registration from classrooms, districts, libraries and families represented 530,000 students from 123 countries eager to hear from Dr. Jane how every individual’s actions can make a big impact.
  • An estimated 200,000 students tuned in live for the events, with the rest requesting to watch on-demand with their class in their own time zone.
