Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots is the Jane Goodall Institute's environmental and humanitarian youth program. Our members, young people from pre-K to university, plan projects to improve the environment, and benefit people and animals.
We develop compassionate leaders to make the world a better place for people, other animals and the environment.
