fire hoses to build a cargo net for captive chimpanzees
The Roots & Shoots staff works together to help youth make a positive impact on the world. They continually
learn from the students, teachers, and leaders they work with because everyone has different experiences and ideas
to offer. Every year, they bring Roots & Shoots groups together to hold Youth and College summits so groups around
North America can meet to share ideas and develop project skills. They also created the Youth Leadership Council so
the most active Roots & Shoots members can help guide the direction of the program.
