Roots & Shoots provides educators with real tools to help them improve 21st Century Learning outcomes (such as critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration building skills) for their students while helping students develop a sense of compassion and commitment to their community and the world around them.

"All too often we use the curriculum to design our programs, while [Roots & Shoots] is opening my eyes that the start begins with the students and what they see. The curriculum is then tied into the service learning project, and because the students started and researched the ideas, they are already engaged and will stay engaged!"
