Be a BIG FISH in a child's life!



Volunteers should support the Mission, Values and Goals of The Fishing School. Our main priority is to prepare public school youth for middle school and beyond by building academic and life skills and by engaging them and their parents through intensive, multi-year programs and services.

At The Fishing School, our volunteers are an integral part of our organization. Volunteers provide on-site and behind-the-scenes help that makes many of our initiatives as effective as they are.
