• INSPIRING YOUTH • PLANTING THE SEEDS OF CHANGE • GROWING CONFIDENCE •
Our mission is to help youth embrace their roots and energize them with inspiration and resources to transform the world.
Our vision is to invest in a more peaceful and innovative world by building youth with strong hearts and resilience.
We started BeatRoot as an opportunity to serve our community. We joined Girl Scouts in 2001 and have been trying our best to make the world a better place since. Over the past 5 years, we have conducted chess camps, anti-bullying workshops, leadership and empowerment seminars, and given keynote addresses about our work. Our projects have all been free to attend, thanks to our many sponsors throughout the years:
