Most of us have had a mentor at some point in our lives that inspired us, taught us, and delighted in our successes. It’s a wonderful thing, but not everyone is so lucky, especially when it comes to having an outdoor mentor. By becoming a volunteer certified angler instructor through the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism’s Angler Education program, you’ll not only have an avenue for sharing your passion for angling with others, but you too, could be someone’s mentor.
To get you started, a certification course will be held on:
Apart from becoming a certified angler education instructor, attendees will also be given valuable information regarding working with children, sample curriculums, and tips for preparing a class or clinic.
Participants must be 18 years old and pass a background check prior to certification. (email firstname.lastname@example.org after you register and we will send you the form to complete.)
Youth between the ages of 12 and 17 with a signed parental form can also take the workshop and gain Junior Assisting Angler Volunteer status. This age group must work with a certified instructor when hosting an aquatic education activity, clinic, derby or outreach.
