Our Mission

Community Engagement at Warren Wilson College is committed to fostering meaningful, ethical, and participatory collaboration between students and community partners. Through mutually beneficial relationships, students will enhance their critical consciousness and vocational discernment while community partners will gain labor and resources to further their missions. This exchange is guided by our commitment to inclusive excellence and will remain rooted in the following values:

  • Reciprocity: Our programming is guided by mutual benefit, and is asset-based and participatory in nature.
  • Accessibility: We strive to give all students, partners, and beneficiaries equitable access to opportunities and services.
  • Critical Consciousness: All community engagement experiences will be framed with preparation and reflection that utilizes social justice pedagogy to support enhanced critical awareness of self and community.

HandsOn Asheville
Great resource for independent community engagement opportunities in the Asheville area. 

Try a Google search!
If you know the issues you care about or the type of work you like doing, try search terms such as "homelessness, Asheville, volunteer" or "animals, Asheville, volunteer." Most organizations have a page on their website about how you can get involved. 

Stop by the Log Cabin to chat with Bonners and/or Community Engagement staff. We'd love to help you find an opportunity that you love!


Independent PEG 2

If you are doing an independent PEG 2 project, you must complete the following steps before your PEG 2 is considered complete:

  • Attend a Log Cabin Reflection Session (check back from more details about these!)
  • Record your hours and experience as an Impact on GivePulse.

Designated PEG 2 Courses and Bonner-Led Opportunities

  • You are not required to enter an impact - your instructor or trip leader will report those hours for you! 
  • You are not required to attend a Log Cabin Reflection Session, but you are welcome to do so!
