It was such a great experience and I have nothing but good things to say about working with Roots & Rivers. I liked the dynamic and collaborative nature of the work and I felt supported to bring my strengths and creativity to the team. Roots & Rivers is about people and community and that shows. I truly hope we have another opportunity to work together in the future.

Working with Roots & Rivers is always insightful and inspiring. Not only do they have deep knowledge of systems change and impact, but they are also open to learning new perspectives, approaches, and ideas from their partners. You really feel like equals in the co-creation process, especially when working towards making positive change in our communities. It was such a pleasure to work with them.
