“ATA’s outreach team works hard to reach the inner-city, urban-youth market because their participation helps grow archery and bowhunting,” said Jennifer Mazur, ATA’s director of archery and bowhunting programs. “The OYEA fosters a passion for the outdoors within a population that doesn’t typically experience it. We’re excited to donate to the OYEA foundation, and make archery available and accessible to more youths. The OYEA is an established organization with good community involvement and reliable partnerships. We look forward to working with them.”
With the ATA’s help, the OYEA meets potential sponsors, media members and other partners at the grassroots level to build visibility and awareness about its Capital Campaign.
“The ATA fosters relationships with OYEA and the industry,” said Emily Beach, ATA’s senior director of outreach and education. “This is a rare opportunity to test an inner-city center that includes community support and partners. It also includes the possibility to obtain grants to provide services and support beyond archery programming. We hope this effort offers insight into recruitment opportunities that also benefit ATA members, state agencies and nongovernmental organizations.”
