The Florida Fishing Academy has spent almost nine years delivering a highly celebrated, custom-designed fishing education and life skills program to Palm Beach County elementary, middle and high schools students. At its heart, the Angling For a Healthy Future curriculum is an environmental awareness initiative that teaches children – tomorrow’s boaters, anglers and environmental stewards – to enjoy Florida’s fragile marine resources in a way that preserves the ecosystem for generations to come. The program also arms these kids with the tools and knowledge to resist the temptations of the streets and to gain a richer appreciation for our local waters. Some even use what we teach them to pursue jobs in the marine industries.
