Meet Your Special Guest Instructor:
Join us this summer as we aim to graduate another class of impressive change-makers who are ready to roll up their sleeves and complete meaningful service learning projects in their communities.
Participants who complete the course will receive a Roots & Shoots Certificate of Completion. We recommend uploading the certificate to your online professional profiles (such as LinkedIn).
Here's what previous students are saying about the course:
"At the schools I have worked at in the past, we have done some community service projects, but nothing like the service learning that we are all learning about through this course. I cannot wait to help my students begin on their journey!"
"I loved the introduction to the mapping engine [GME Lite]. I have already found it useful. This provides a valuable skill for teachers and students."
"The course was comprehensive and helpful as a veteran Roots & Shoots leader. I look forward to trying the community mapping."
