Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower kids to expand their possibilities through fishing. We strive to give disadvantaged kids an opportunity to develop skills and enhance their self esteem. Since 1994 we've delivered a program titled "Teach a Child to Fish" to teach inner-city youth sport fishing and safe boating. We teach the kids to fish and enjoy the outdoors while teaching life skills to stay off drugs, in school and out of gangs. We provide afterschool, out of school and Saturday programs.
