Thank you for your interest in joining The Mayfly Project!

Becoming a TMP mentor means you agree that mentoring goes beyond just teaching a child how to fly fish– it means you are dedicated to providing a safe environment for children in foster care to find a connection with the outdoors. TMP requires an interview, reference checks, and a background check for applicants. We look forward to having you onboard!

Join TMP in the United Kingdom!

“During the project,  each child had a mentor to bond with that made them feel safe during this project. The children took risks that showed they felt comfortable in the situation. The mentors were all very patient and willing to work with the children to make this experience a great one. There was a lot of praise when the children were successful in catching a fish or tying the right knot. They left feeling capable and proud.”
