Our goal is to reach a younger generation that is in desperate need of leadership and positive mentoring. Through our Day at the Lake initiative, we are able to share valuable experiences, a positive attitude, and insight with boys who may not have a father figure. To reach further into the community, we are looking for corporate and individual sponsors who are willing show their commitment to our future - our young men.
The Flint Men's Community Action Resource (MCAR) offers our 13th annual 'Day at the Lake' mentoring activity when the Flint Public Schools let out in June. A training day will be held this year on Saturday June 1, 2019 from 9AM-5:30PM to train the young men in the crafts of knot tying, casting, fish cleaning, DNR fishing regulations, boaters safety, respect & accountability just to name a few. Lunch is included.
If they complete the entire training day, the boys are invited to join us the following Friday, June 7thto go out of the city to Shay Lake for an overnight Fishing Derby. As a bonus, they will receive their very own fishing rod/reel and a tackle box full of tackle! They can use this in Saturday's Fishing Derby, taking place on June 8th, 2019 where more prizes can be won.
We allow every single young man to attend at no cost but we seek donations to defray the cost of the prizes, the food, the transportation, and the lodging at Camp Genesis on Shay Lake in Millington, MI. Last year we hosted 60 young men for this event and we would love to have more this year!
We would very much appreciate your donations to help us with this event.
