Become a Volunteer

Love the sport of fishing? We do, too!

Whether you’re a once-a-year angler or someone who has a way with jigs and bobbers, we need you to join us as a volunteer in 2022!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • We host 20-25 events/year and you can sign up for 1, 5, 10 or all of them using an online signup.
  • There are many jobs we need help with at our FREE fishing clinics around Wisconsin. You don’t have to know fish types, how to tie a hook and line, or even how to fish to do some jobs. Here’s a list of some of them:
    o Setup
    o Registration
    o Sales of L2FWU Merchandise via iPad/iPhone & Square
    o Casting instruction (“10 and 2” positions; overhead casting using hookless fishing poles – open & closed reels)
    o Assist with fishing stations if enough volunteers (fish identification – card packets provided; bait station – bait and identification provided)
  • We will run a background check on all volunteers to keep our kids safe.

Teaching kids and families how to fish is so rewarding, and you help give them a skill for life that they can share with the entire family.

Can we reel in your support for 2023?

Does your employer offer VTO?
Some organizations offer paid volunteer time off (VTO), meaning you could get paid while volunteering at L2F events. Check with your employer today!

Background Screening

To protect the children we teach at our clinics, the Learn 2 Fish With Us Board has implemented a mandatory background screening policy for all volunteers. You must complete this in order to sign up for any of our events. These background checks will be paid for by Learn 2 Fish. Please click here to complete the background check. Please allow one week for turnaround on approval. Volunteering for a Learn 2 Fish event is contingent on a clear background check.
