Fish for Change
Fish for Change is a non-profit organization that uses fly-fishing as a platform to make the world a better place by uniting a diverse group of students in wild fisheries where they engage in a variety of initiatives that promote connection, education, conservation and exploration.
“At Fish For Change, the change that we see most is an internal change within the student, in the way they treat people and look at the world,” says F4C Executive Director and Bajío Odyssey Crew Member Heather Harkavy. “It’s a real eye opener for these teens.”
The takeaway is two-fold: youth fly fishers learn to become stewards of their environment, taking responsibility to protect the very resource that gives them so much; and, through cultural exchange, students connect with new people and places learning empathy and gaining a global perspective on how world how the world operates.
