Fishing for Life hosts several fishing events throughout the summer where volunteers bring their boats to the event and take kids fishing for the morning. We come in for a picnic lunch and hand out trophies/prizes. Boats arrive at 6:30 or 7 am and event wraps up around 1:30 pm.

We need helpers for registration, shore fishing, and volunteers with boats who will take another adult and 2-3 kids out fishing. We also welcome small groups that would be interested in coordinating and preparing the food for the picnic. We generally partner with a different organization at each event to bring at-risk youth or kids who don't have many opportunities to fish from a boat.
