The Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council Virtual Summer Summit 2020

August 6-10, 2020

Roots & Shoots is one of the largest global movements powered by youth. The actions these young leaders are taking in their communities have a collective impact that is changing the course of our shared future. This year’s NYLC 5-day Summit will be unlike any other! As a fun and dynamic program, the NYLC Summer Summit will provide virtual skills training, storytelling, workshops led by industry professionals, opportunities for service, project presentations, and more to support youth activists in the Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council in making their mark in all aspects of their lives.

The result is creating long-lasting, meaningful relationships with change-making peers, and all the tools and skills to create a better world for people, other animals and the environment we share.
