Life Mentor Opportunities

The Lincoln Youth Sports Life Mentor Program was founded to encourage leadership to help mentor youth, and/or raising money for L.Y.S.A. due to the heavy need to provide the subsidies required to finance the incredibly inexpensive hunts for youth.

Life Mentors have three options of commitment. The first option is that they can receive their designation in pairs.  Two individuals agree to raise $25,000 over the next 5 years with a minimum of $5000 per calendar year.  They also commit to take a group of hunters out to the Lincoln Youth Sports Ducks Galore Lodge at least once per waterfowl hunting season in an effort to either mentor kids or as a fund raiser for the kids hunting subsidy program.  They agree to do this for the remainder of their life. One of the individuals will pick the week of the year that is their designated commitment. The other will be listed as an alternate and will take the lead roll if the first can not fulfill their commitment. The second option is that an individual can do a solo commitment of raising $15,000 over the next 5 years with a minimum of $3,000 per calendar year. In either option they must continue to maintain their membership fees annually. The third option is that an individual can do a solo commitment of raising $10,000 in one calendar year. In any of the options, they must continue to maintain their membership fees annually.

Life Mentors also commit to attempting to be an unofficial non-working guide at the lodge when outside groups want to stay at the lodge for a private hunt or personal hunt as often as they can.  This is necessary since outside private hunts or personal hunts must have at least one LYSA Life Mentor in their hunting group.

Due to the heavy time and financial commitment, Lincoln Youth Sports and its board of directors agrees, at the time of the Life Mentor's commitment, to provide the Life Mentors with a commitment of one week (referred to as "Hunt") per year blocked off for them as to provide them with the continued opportunity to fulfill their lifetime commitment to either mentor or raise money at no cost to them and can never be removed or revoked by Lincoln Youth Sports or its board of directors unless they are released from their commitment either voluntary or involuntary under the provisions under "The Release."

The Release

Life Mentors will be released of their commitment if they:

  1. Die.

  2. Do not renew their individual annual membership fee during the calendar year it applies. If one of the two mentors does not pay their individual annual membership fee, it does not release the other Life Mentor of their commitment if their membership fee is paid.

  3. Do not raise the minimum of $1,000 in any of the first 4 years. Deficit of achieving an average of $5,000 per year for dual Mentorship or $3,000 for individual Mentorship must be made up before the completion of the next calendar year to stay in good standing.

  4. Do not raise the total dollars committed to achieve in five years.

  5. Request it in writing and there is unanimous acceptance of the request by the board of directors.

  6. Have been deemed by a unanimous vote by the LYSA board of directors to be unfit to take proper and reasonable care of all the facilities of Lincoln Youth Sports during their Hunt or at any time they are at the lodge as a guest.  If it is a board member, or their relative, or similarly, someone that is deemed to have a conflict of interest, that is in question, their vote will not apply to the unanimous decision.

  7. Have been deemed by a unanimous vote by the LYSA board of directors to be unfit to collect correct fees for the proper amount for their guests at the lodge.

  8. Can no longer work together with their co-Mentor.  The two mentors must decide which of them will stay with their commitment.  If they can not decide between the two of them then both will be released from their commitment.

Other obligations and regulations they agree to are:

To commit to their Hunt by September 12 of each year or then, by not doing so, agree to open it up to others who wish to use Ducks Galore Lodge.

To collect all fees due from their guests along with their guests personal information such as name, mailing address, phone numbers and email address.

Other benefits are:

Life Mentors can "invade" and attend any hunt at anytime without restriction (other than "requesting" attendance of the host 24 hours in advance) but must provide their own sleeping arrangements if no lodge bunks or beds are available and must "field" hunt if hunting seats are full.  Cooperation is strongly encouraged.
