Growing Compassionate Leaders is an innovative, online, professional development course that is free and open to everyone. The course teaches participants how to identify and implement a local service learning campaign using the Roots & Shoots program model.
Complete the course and mentor young people to lead change in their communities by mapping needs, collaborating with stakeholders, and designing practical solutions in the form of campaigns (and learn a lot along the way). Connect young people to Dr. Goodall’s message of hope while facilitating a sense of empowerment that comes from helping others.
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.
