Our Team

A Passion for Creating Compassionate Changemakers

Roots & Shoots is more than just a program or a movement, it’s a family.

It’s a family of like-minded individuals all working individually and together to be our best selves and to create a better world for all. Our team is filled with caring, motivated people with skills and experience across education, public speaking, activism, and even acting! Every team member of Roots & Shoots knows firsthand the power of young people to make transformative change happen, and together they work tirelessly to empower even more youth to do just that. Many of the team members have gone through Roots & Shoots themselves, starting with simple projects, growing their abilities and impact. Get to know more about them and what makes them compassionate changemakers.
