Welcome to R.O.O.T.S. Youth Development Program
R.O.O.T.S. (Reaching Outside of Traditional Schooling) Youth+ Development Program, a community full of passionate educators that strive to bridge the gap in traditional learning, teach self-sufficiency, and promote altruism within our local community.
We believe there is a monumental need to heal the disconnection between the people themselves, and the earth that provides for us. We are inspired to help raise up a generation of children who are deeply connected to the world around them, have the knowledge and practical life skills to live self-sufficiently, while promoting altruism to build community. Introducing children to these skills at a young age will establish an amazing foundation for their futures.
ROOTS is located in Georgetown, DE on a family homestead. We offer hands-on, integrative life-skill workshops for ages 18 months to adults, on the homestead and throughout the community! R.O.O.T.S. teaches on our core pillars: Bushcraft (Survival skills), Regenerative Farming, Animal Husbandry (Animal care), Nature Study, Homesteading, and Mindfulness! Some examples of classes: Composting, Lotion-Making, Spring Planting, Variations of Flowers, Backyard Flock Care, Bunny Care, Yoga, and much more!
