Caroline G. '16 Named National Youth Leadership
by Raffi Darrow, Ebytes Editor
Junior Caroline G. was selected for Jane's Goodall's Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council for the 2015 year term.
The Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council provides highly motivated and dedicated young leaders throughout the United States with the training, resources and opportunities to develop into community leaders who create positive change in their own backyards and around the world.
Council members participate in unique professional development and skill-building seminars, as well as campaign planning sessions, designed to empower them to action and connect with community leaders and influential change-makers working in relevant fields. We look forward to the great work this group will do for the global community!
Caroline volunteers at the Clay Center of St. Petersburg and spends time at Tampa Bay Watch, a local marine conservation group. Last summer, she volunteered at the Kohala Reef Teach Center in Hawai’i to educate the public about the importance of protecting the coral reefs and the animals that live there. In her free time she enjoys spending time outdoors, making music, cooking and practicing yoga. Caroline has a strong passion for protecting the Earth’s natural beauty as well as the people who live on it.
Founded in 1991 by Dr. Jane Goodall and a group of Tanzanian students, the Roots & Shoots program is about making positive change happen—for our communities, for animals and for the environment. With tens of thousands of young people in more than 120 countries, the Roots & Shoots network connects youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action. Through service projects, youth-led campaigns and an interactive website, Roots & Shoots members are making a difference across the globe.
