ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq: MANT) announced that The Fishing School, the nationally-recognized youth development organization in Washington, D.C. that has been supported by CharityWorks and ManTech, will be featured on the ABC-TV show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, on February 14, 8 pm ET. The segment describes the rebuilding of The Fishing School, which involved dozens of workers and thousands of volunteers, including celebrity guest Tyler Perry.

Tom Lewis, the founder of The Fishing School said, “This new building is truly a blessing and we will use it to continue to be of service to this city’s youth and their parents.” The Fishing School provides children and families with academic and parental support through two community-based centers located in Wards 6 and 7 in Washington, DC. The philosophy of The Fishing School is inspired by the adage, “If you give a man a fish, you will feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will feed himself for a lifetime.” Since 1990 their programs have helped more than 2,500 students.

To help raise awareness and support, The Fishing School is encouraging people to host viewing parties, with family and friends. Information on hosting a party is available at:

George J. Pedersen, ManTech Chairman and CEO said, “Several years ago, my wife Marilyn and I met an unbelievable man, Tom Lewis. A retired police officer, Tom founded this youth development organization with $2,100 in a former crack house in one of the worst neighborhoods in D.C. We are delighted to have supported The Fishing School and to have partnered with Tom over the last 20 years.”

ManTech has partnered with CharityWorks, a major philanthropic organization in the Washington metropolitan area, to support The Fishing School and other organizations. CharityWorks has distributed more than $9 million in high impact grants to non-profit organizations.
