The Children’s Welfare League, founded in 1923, is a non-profit volunteer volunteer organization providing much needed assistance to more than 200 disadvantaged but deserving high school students in Buncombe County and the city of Asheville. Partnering with high school guidance counsellors it identifies students in need who are committed to their education. These students are then provided a monthly stipend which is contingent on specific grade and attendance requirements. The stipends are used for basic necessities and fees that will help motivate them to stay in school and be successful. CWL also funds scholarship programs at AB Tech and UNCA.
