Youth Hunting Program of Florida Volunteer

Youth Hunting LogoThe Youth Hunting Program of Florida is designed to introduce more young people to hunting and conservation by offering safe, educational, mentored youth hunts. Thanks to private landowners who graciously open up their property, youth accompanied by a parent or guardian can learn outdoor skills from a mentor during organized hunts. The FWC and its partners offer hunts for deer, turkey, hogs, waterfowl, dove, small game and more. 

Volunteer Opportunities

To help uphold hunting for future generations, today's youth must be provided quality hunting experiences. There are many volunteer opportunities for you to participate in the Youth Hunting Program.

  • Oversee firearm instruction and supervise shooting ranges
  • Conduct hunter education and other educational activities
  • Serve as hunting guides
  • Provide medical expertise
