Founded in 2010 by co-founders Lindsey Jones and Heather Dittmer, Upward Roots aims to address the service opportunity gap.

Since then, Upward Roots has enrolled over 2,000 students from 20 Title I elementary schools in Oakland. They have supported over 160 youth-led service projects that directly benefit their schools and communities. Participants in their program focus on areas such as homelessness, the environment, health, and violence.
