The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation (USSAF) and the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) are joining forces to promote outdoor sports to America’s youth.

The two partner organizations will collaborate by bringing together their signature outdoor education programs, the JAKES program and the Trailblazer Adventure Program, to offer more opportunities for American children and their families to enjoy outdoor sports than ever before.

The NWTF’s JAKES program, or Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics, and Sportsmanship offer youth 17 and under a chance to learn about the outdoors. The JAKES program has regional and local events designed to teach kids the skills necessary to be successful and safe in the outdoors.

Last year, over 800 JAKES events were held across the country.

The Trailblazer Adventure Program is the largest scale outdoor program of its kind, promoting outdoor sports to more than 700,000 youth and families since 2001.
