“Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem weak, but to reach the sun they break brick walls.” – Dr Jane Goodall

Roots & Shoots is a powerful, youth-driven, global network of more than 8,000 groups in almost 100 countries.  Together, youth of all ages are taking action to improve our world through service learning projects that promote care and concern for animals, the environment, and the human community.

This year, Sky Islands was one of the four schools in Tucson selected by the Jane Goodall Institute to plan and implement community-based projects.  Students at Sky Islands, as part of their classwork, will build and install raptor houses, and campaign for a bottle bill in Arizona.
