We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization whose primary goal is to give youth interested in conservation the education, mentorship and advocacy opportunities to mature into natural resource sustainability leaders within our community.
We focus on three areas of study: Technical skills for archery, wildlife and natural science and conservation stewardship.
We feel this core foundation is necessary for successful leaders to sustain and advocate for a lifetime of ethical and sustainable conservation while serving as the preferred ambassadors for natural resource sustainability in and of our communities.
We grow our leaders with a core curriculum of study, professional mentorship and key stakeholder partnering which enables our students to participate in hands-on wildlife habitat improvement and sustainability projects with a variety of partners including private landowners, farmers, private business, state, federal and non-governmental agencies.
Once our students pass our rigorous program, which includes comprehensive academics, demonstrated technical expertise, and a minimum of 60 hours of volunteerism, they earn privileges including archery equipment and exclusive access to partnering landowners for mentor-guided archery hunts through the Green Bow Foundation until they reach age 18.
The Green Bow Foundation was founded by retired United States Navy Veteran James Pinsky who in his youth found sanctuary in the outdoors and wanted other youths to have that same experience.
