Mission Statement

The Fishing School’s (TFS) mission is to provide a safe haven and academic support to underserved youth and their families in Washington, D.C. The Fishing School’s name was the vision of our founder, Tom Lewis, and comes from the adage, "If you give a man a fish, you will feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will feed himself for a lifetime." By teaching young people to "fish in the rivers of their minds," TFS is changing generations
