Located in the mountains of North Carolina, Asheville Youth Mission gives young people an opportunity to explore the hidden needs and struggles of those who are living on the margins within and around a beautiful tourist town. Groups will work with a variety of agencies offering support to those who are homeless, in poverty, or food insecure, both in urban and rural settings. Find out more here.

Cancellation Policy The unpredictable nature of the pandemic and life in general means that plans can change. If for some reason your family needs to cancel, we will do our best to refund as much of the trip cost as possible, but that usually depends on how close to the event the cancellation happens (i.e. the closer to the trip, the harder it is to get money returned).
COVID Policy While it’s certainly our hope that pandemic is a non-issue during our trip to Asheville, we will prepare for it anyways. That means we will follow AYM’s guidance on masking, social distancing, and testing as that becomes available. Because our group will be spending 7 days in close proximity, we ask that all participants be fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to July 10th.
