Fencing in the Schools will serve youth through in and out of school time fencing programs, partnering with public schools in low-income communities and other community-based organizations to provide students with an opportunity to learn about the sport, engage in fencing practices and competitions, and gain important life skills like teamwork and leadership through their participation. Students will learn about the sport and be taught by Olympic-level fencing athletes. 501c3 Information: Click Here.
