We are parents, gaurdians, and supporters of ethical, freethinking children and youth.

We meet for social activities, educational programs, seasonal celebrations, and nature outings that encourage children and youth to ask questions and to deepen trust in their own internal "compass".

We affirm the values of  the American Ethical Union and our sponsor, the Ethical Society of Asheville and YouthQuest of Asheville.  We also affirm the values of the American Humanist Association and our local partners, WNC Humanists and S.P.A.N.C.
