OGTV’S SCHOOL OF HUNT PARTNERS WITH NSSF’S PROJECT CHILDSAFE TO EDUCATE CHILDREN ABOUT FIREARMS SAFETY
School of Hunt provides youth and mentors a foundation for conservation, safety and knowledge
SALT LAKE CITY, May 9, 2017 – Outfitters Guide Television and Project ChildSafe, the firearms safety education program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), have partnered in support of Outfitters Guide’s School of Hunt program.
The School of Hunt provides a week-long experience that brings selected youth and their mentors together on a Utah private ranch with top professionals in the outdoor industry. Participants and mentors will receive in-depth training and experiences that will help them become better hunters and outdoor stewards.
An important part of the School of Hunt is centered on proper use of firearms and the responsibility that comes from firearms use and ownership.
“We are honored to have Project ChildSafe join us at the School of Hunt,” said founder Jeff Jensen. “Project ChildSafe provides us a wealth of information, resources and educational tools that will help participating youth and mentors be safe, educated and proactive advocates as they pursue and enjoy the shooting sports lifestyle.”
Through partnerships with more than 15,000 local law enforcement agencies and more than 3,500 organizational supporters throughout the United States, including OGTV, Project ChildSafe has helped educate firearms owners on the importance of gun safety, while distributing more than 37 million free firearms safety kits, which include a safety brochure and cable-style gun lock, to communities in all 50 states and the five U.S. territories. For the School of Hunt program, Project ChildSafe will provide its safety kits and educational materials to the program participants.
“We’re very grateful for the work of organizations such as Outfitters Guide and School of Hunt,” said NSSF President and CEO Steve Sanetti. “They are great examples of how the firearms-owning community is genuinely committed to safety and personal responsibility, and their work is instrumental in helping to reduce firearms accidents.”
Reflections Media Group is the parent media company for Outfitters Guide Television. Outfitters Guide provides dream outdoor adventures to selected participants for free. School of Hunt was started in 2015 to offer outdoor opportunities, education and experience to youth who do not have access to family or mentors who can teach and provide a gateway to the outdoor lifestyle and activities.
