"The best part of doing the Roots & Shoots training for me was working with other educators and the Roots & Shoots staff to learn the ins and outs of the model. I walked away knowing how to show students the way to make digital maps and identify issues in their community so they could take action. It gave me the confidence to get involved with service learning in my community."
