School, University, or community clubs of individuals joined together to make a difference for animals, people and the environment.

How To Start a Club

Roots & Shoots Clubs in New Zealand are school-based, or at Universities, or within community organisations.

Take the following steps to start a club:

  • Get approval from a teacher, University or organisation, explain why you would like to start a Roots & Shoots club.
  • School based clubs - Ask a teacher to oversee the club, liaise between club members and the school, and be a contact for Roots & Shoots Staff.
  • Elect club leadership. Establish a “Club Day” for regular interval Roots & Shoots Club meetings.
  • Clubs should have at least one on-going project from one of the theme areas of environment, community and animals.
  • Register you club with JGINZ!

Members of a Roots & Shoots club should feel a strong sense of ownership and responsibility for the group. Members will attend meetings and select and execute projects.
