I Dream of Green

Projects-in-a-Box are intended to provide Roots & Shoots members more support and guidance to complete a Roots & Shoots project. Through this Project-in-a-Box ‘I Dream of Green’, you will learn how you can make a difference and green your community! This project guide follows the Roots & Shoots 4-Step Formula. The 4-Step Formula helps you get inspired and take action through easy and fun tools. This also helps develop your Compassionate Traits, so while you’re building a better community, you’re also building a better YOU!

Best part? If you’re a member (which is FREE), you can register your project on your Roots & Shoots profile for a chance to be featured. Include the key word ‘Team Green’ in your project title!
