Youth Fishing Club provides city kids with a chance to get out into nature and touch worms! Forest Ave Outreach partners with Des Moines Parks and Recreation and Polk County Conservation’s Fish Iowa! Program, taking 24 kids fishing once a week throughout the summer. This is one of the most rewarding experiences for our volunteers! There just are not words to explain the thrill and excitement of seeing a kid catching their first fish!
As you can imagine, fishing with 24 kids requires a lot of adult volunteers. This program requires four to six volunteers each week May – Early August. If you enjoying fishing and want to share that passion with local youth, here is your opportunity! Click here.
