Certificates of Recognition

Get Recognized for the Amazing Impact of Your Projects!

Roots & Shoots change-makers and your projects blow us away every single day. This is your chance to stand in the spotlight and get recognized!

Roots & Shoots Certificates of Recognition celebrate the tremendous impact you create through your community-action projects. From supporting healthcare workers to protecting wildlife, to fighting injustice and building to community to organizing the collection of resources for those in need, your work and projects this and every year deserve something special.

What you’ll get: 

  • Roots & Shoots members who have completed 2 projects in the last year can receive a certificate signed by Roots & Shoots Vice President, Kamilah Martin.
  • Roots & Shoots members who have completed 3 projects or more in the last year are eligible to receive a certificate digitally signed by the one and only Dr. Jane Goodall!
  • BONUS: If you apply, your projects and work have the chance to be featured across our channels (blog, social media, and email) for the whole world to see!
