Project Overview

Roots of Success is an empowering environmental educational program that prepares youth and adults who come from communities heavily impacted by poverty, unemployment, and environmental injustice for environmental careers and to improve conditions in their communities. Roots of Success delivers its program in two ways (1) through live instruction and (2) through a digital platform.

The digital version of Roots of Success has received excellent reviews for its content. However, the technology and fluidity of the interface can be challenging and slightly cumbersome. Therefore, a review and update is in order. Our Roots of Success online platform proposal and related content is outlined below:
1) Evaluate the ROS online curriculum to determine how to enhance the student’s online experience
2) Determine if we should use an existing online platform, and if so which application, or enhance the ROS platform we are using.
3) Determine how we can leverage free technology platforms for nonprofits and/or raise funding from the ed/tech ecosystem to support the costs of an existing platform.

GOALS

2) Determine if we should use an existing online platform, and if so which application, or enhance the ROS platform we are using.

Roots of Success is an empowering environmental educational program that prepares youth and adults who come from communities heavily impacted by poverty, unemployment, and environmental injustice for environmental careers and to improve conditions in their communities. Our program is offered to adults and youth in prisons, jails, job training programs, reentry programs, high schools and youth programs. Since 2010, over 25,000 students have taken our course; many are now employed in good "green" family-supporting jobs. We are heavily dependent on probono support to accomplish our mission and goals and would greatly appreciate any support you can provide. For more information about our program see our Ten Year Report at https://rootsofsuccess.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/ROS-Ten-Year-Report-FINAL-Sept-2020-.pdf
We have very carefully thought through and developed our proposal for pro bono support. We are very experienced in delivering educational programming to our partners and will be able to immediately implement any recommendations made by the Tipping Point team.
