Federal Ammunition Sponsors Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors
Federal Ammunition ® renewed their sponsorship of the Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors program, giving more children the opportunity to experience the great outdoors.
Federal Ammunition has renewed their sponsorship commitment to help expand and grow the Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors program that gives children the opportunity to experience the great outdoors.
Vice President Brittany French said, “the youth in our program have expressed 3 barriers to getting involved in the outdoors. Those barriers include not knowing where to hunt or fish, not having the correct skill set and confidence to go, and not having anyone to go with. Those barriers are the reason we get excited to go to work everyday. We are working tenaciously to break those barriers by coordinating outdoor opportunities for youth through mentorship.”
“Youth experience challenges and hurdles every day and while we attempt to increase participation in hunting, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors we need to work together with partners to remove these barriers to entry. Pass it On – Outdoor Mentors does a tremendous job working with state wildlife agencies and other partners to get more youth involved in hunting and shooting sports and Federal is proud to support their continued efforts.” said Jon Zinnel, Federal Ammunition’s Youth Shooting Sports Sr. Manager.
Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors partners with state fish and wildlife agencies, conservation organizations and youth organizations to give at-risk children outdoor opportunities they would not have had otherwise. “Too many children today never get the chance to experience the great outdoors we all know and love. When you hear a youngster say they’ve never seen a cow or been on a dirt road, you know we must step up our efforts to get these children opportunities to get outdoors,” stated French.
“Our program is growing leaps and bounds year after year and that is because of the generosity from our sponsors like Federal Ammunition. We cannot thank them enough for their unwavering support as we continue to pass on our love for the outdoors through mentorship.” said Brittany French.
