Chloe N.

National Youth Leadership Council
“When I thought back to the organization that Dr. Jane founded, one where young people could join together and make real changes from within their communities, I realized that I had found the answer I had been looking for. My involvement with Roots & Shoots started out as a way for me to finally make a concrete difference in the world around me.”

Grade: Freshmen at University of Pennsylvania

Roots & Shoots History: Four years with Roots & Shoots

Roots & Shoots Group: Blind Brook Roots & Shoots

Chloe is a freshmen at University of Pennsylvania. This is her third year on the National Youth Leadership Council. As leader of the Blind Brook Roots & Shoots club, her favorite project has been the initiative to compost school lunch trays. This student-led initiative taught Chloe the difference young people can make through persistence and advocacy. She has also enjoyed organizing a tree-planting fundraiser, volunteering at a native plant sale, and getting involved in ecology research where she studies the impacts of overabundant deer on forests. When she’s not doing projects with Roots & Shoots, you can find her volunteering at her local soup kitchen, curling up with a good book, or singing old Disney songs.
