Roots & Shoots New England
Roots & Shoots New England is part of an international network of youth groups dedicated to making a difference for the environment, animals, and human communities. This program is based on Dr. Jane Goodall’s belief that “Every individual matters; every individual has a role to play; every individual makes a difference.” Roots & Shoots focuses on experiential learning and encouraging people to take action in their local community. Over 8,000 groups almost 100 countries operate on an independent, local level in schools, colleges, day care and nature centers, youth groups, zoos, or as concerned individuals and families. Each group plans and carries out service projects showing care and concern for the planet and its inhabitants.
