From Asheville, take exit 53B off I-40 onto the I-240 by-pass going west. Take the exit for Hwy 19/23 North toward Weaverville, and follow Hwy 19/23 until the Weaverville exit at Monticello Rd. There are two exits, take the second one for Hwy 25/70 to Marshall. Do not take the exit for downtown Marshall (about 10 miles into the drive on 25/70), but continue on Hwy 25/70 toward Hotsprings. After passing AB Tech Madison Campus on your right you will be on the Marshall by-pass. After passing a new Ingles store on your right you will come to a traffic light at the High School. Take this right and the next left and you will be at the central office. I have the last office on the left, which is marked.

Youth programming this year includes middle school after-school programming, a middle and high school tutoring/mentoring program, and a middle school transition program.

Volunteer Involvement:

The Madison Team Success program at Madison Middle and High schools serves over 90 referred students, providing tutoring and mentoring services during the school day and utilizing 10 community volunteers. This program, funded through a grant from the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC), serves students who were referred to us by the Juvenile Court system, teachers, guidance councilors, and parents. These students were either adjudicated youth or were in jeopardy of failing or dropping out of school.

Volunteer tutors are needed for this program. Tutors are matched with students at scheduled times between 8am-3pm.
