“If you give a child a fish he will eat for a day, but if you teach him to fish he will eat for a lifetime.”
Fishing Lessons Inc. is a 501.c.3 certified non-profit dedicated and directed toward the education, mentorship and advocacy of adolescents. We are founded on the principle “If you give a child a fish he will eat for a day, but if you teach him to fish he will eat for a lifetime.” This truth is a guiding light as our employees and volunteers collaborate with schools and communities in an effort to improve the lives of adolescents.
Our organization seeks to alter the negative patterns of behavior in our communities and schools by endorsing positive values and improving the quality of education, while also addressing personal issues of the child. Endorsing positive values are identifiable in our adolescent mentors. Improving the quality of education is manifested by our educational consultanting, tutoring services and collaboration with community organizations and advocates.
