We listen. We plan. We roll up our sleeves. We get it done.

Our Mission

Our Vision

The Root Collaborative is a boutique wraparound consulting firm that partners with schools, non-profits, and youth serving organizations to build their capacity to serve more youth, to better serve youth, and to better reflect the communities they serve.


Our vision is that all people and organizations that serve youth continually strive and work to be accessible, inclusive and relevant and that the field evolves to meet the diverse and ever changing needs of youth.
