Finding inspiration through service work at school and abroad, rising Asheville School seniors Nicole Alleyne and Maggie Chang have spearheaded Camp Good Trouble -- a day camp about empowerment, mindset, and building confidence for the youth of Asheville.
An important part of an Asheville School education is learning the value of community and service to others. During their time here, students engage in a variety of service, first in projects on campus and later in the greater Asheville community. Along the way, they work with classmates, faculty members and community members, both young and old, and gain valuable insight into themselves and others.
Through the school's commitment to service, students learn that volunteerism contributes to their becoming responsible and compassionate citizens.
Asheville School prioritizes a purposefully-small community where every student is known, loved, and supported through their high school career. This year, a group of Asheville School students had the opportunity to create those same supportive connections with local elementary school students through a new service-based afternoon activity.
On Asheville School Service Saturdays, the gardening service group grows produce to harvest and donate to local food pantries or other nonprofits that provide food to families in need.
