The Compassionate Leaders Our World Needs
The Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) is an example of what is possible when the imagination and passion of young people motivated to make positive change is unleashed. The NYLC brings together passionate young leaders from around the United States to learn, grow, and collaborate on service projects that make the world a better place.
Students in grades 8-11 join the NYLC to gain valuable skills in service compassionate leadership, receive mentorship from influential leaders, and participate in training to represent Roots & Shoots across the country as they inspire this and the next generation to take action on behalf of people, other animals and the environment we share.
What’s more, members of the NYLC create friendships and memories that last a lifetime.
