Teaching Kids To Fish understands that everybody has the choice to kill and eat what they are comfortable with. Our program allows for every body the choice to catch and release the fish  for the good of the population of the fish we catch. Yet there are many how wish to catch and eat the fish they catch, in that case we allow them that right to do so.

Fishing is about opportunity and choices. The opportunity is to catch fish and the choice is whether to eat them or not. That choice is totally up to the individuals fishing.

Now I'll talk about the children who don't want to fish and to the parents that objects to fishing and  eating fish. This is America and everybody has the right to do, say and believe whatever they wish as long as it is within the law and we will always respect their rights.

As far as a program like Teaching Kids To Fish we are about fishing and we realize that there are people out there that object to fishing and the  eating of fish, that's perfectly OK with us, that's just that may more fish for us to catch. We will not or do not  force anything onto anybody in our program to do or don't do anything that they don't want to do.

Eat fish, don't eat fish, catch fish, don't catch fish. If somebody is uncomfortable with fishing and eating fish then maybe they should not go fishing, because if they was to go fishing they are libel to catch fish, then they would be stuck with the choice of eating them or releasing them.

Hello Everyone

 

've been asked to locate and source advice and guidance about the humane killing and eating of animals as part of an outdoor session with children and young people.

 

I would love to know if any of you can point me in the right direction here - even just advice on fish would help, e.g. what happens about children who don't want to fish or if their parent objects, etc. 

 

Many thanks

Juliet

At Teaching Kids To Fish, we believe that by investing in young people, we are investing in the community as a whole. We are dedicated to the enrichment of our youth through sound, fundamental teaching that transcends all generations. By providing kids the opportunity to learn and grow in an exciting new environment, we will be ensuring their future.

 

At Teaching Kids To Fish, we combine a love of fishing and the outdoors with a passion for reaching the young people in our community.


Our organization operates for the purpose of providing underprivileged, disabled, less fortunate and our local Churches youth groups together as a ministry for youth.  Help them to enjoy the sport of fishing and our natural surroundings through a variety of mentoring, outdoor activities and educational programs.

 

By working with and through other non-profit organizations, we have committed ourselves to providing services to any youth who desire to participate, regardless of their ability.

We live in a society of instantaneous gratification. Fast food, drive-ins, minute meals, and television have accustomed us to a fast-paced lifestyle where everything is on demand. But fishing and the outdoors is different; nature forces us to slow down. At Teaching Kids To Fish, we want to help young people step out of their normal routines and the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and experience fishing and the outdoors first-hand.

Outdoor adventures teach values and create memories that leave a lasting imprint on a young person’s mind. At Teaching Kids To Fish, our trained staff leads in an array of hands-on fishing and outdoor activities that help kids to develop and have patience, character, responsibility, self-worth, to build strong leadership skills, and to empower our young people to recognize their full potential.

Our desire is to provide a Christian setting where young people receive personal attention and feel comfortable in developing personal relationships with our staff and volunteers.

Our goal is to offer kids in our community something to do other than to hang out with the wrong crowds where they could end up in some kind of trouble with our Law Enforcement or begin to experiment with drugs and alcohol. Something new and exciting that will assist our young people in establishing a solid foundation upon which to build for the future.
