and Create a Better World for All!

Through the RSNYLC, youth members unleash their potential and become the compassionate leaders the world needs.

The Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council Summer Summit 2022

August 1-3, 2022

Roots & Shoots is one of the largest global movements powered by youth. The actions these young leaders are taking in their communities have a collective impact that is changing the course of our shared future. This year’s RSNYLC 3-day Summit will be unlike any other! As a fun and dynamic program, the RSNYLC Summer Summit will provide skills training, workshops led by industry professionals, project presentations, and more to support youth activists in the Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council in making their mark in all aspects of their lives.

The result is creating long-lasting, meaningful relationships with change-making peers and all the tools and skills to create a better world for people, other animals, and the environment we share.
