At ROOTS we believe that young people in our community have the capacity to change the world. We support this vision through a positive youth development approach, where young people are supported in ways that recognize them for their strengths, verses their weaknesses.

For the safety and positive support of the young people we serve, we train all of our volunteers in positive youth development practices, conduct background checks, and support volunteers in helping young people access important resources to get through successes and challenges in their lives.
