Our Story

At YouthRoots, it’s about helping our communities. It’s about making sweeping local change. But behind the scenes, it’s about teaching a group of teenagers to "fish". See, we remember being teenagers. We remember having lofty goals, faith in humanity, and little fear of failure… And we also remember people who told us why our big ideas couldn’t work. Frankly, though, it’s up to the next generation to determine how to make their big ideas work. It’s up to today’s teenagers to solve tomorrow’s problems. And instead of tossing up limitations or naysaying their dreams, we want to give them the tools and mindset to do it.
