Peace of Adventure recently merged with Catalyst Sports to offer 1,500 activities annually in multiple cities in the Southeast. We will continue to provide inclusive adaptive sports experiences for individuals with disabilities. Our mission is adaptive sports; our method is volunteerism and community engagement. Thank you for your patience as we migrate over to a new family!
Promoting Wellness. Empowering Others.
Peace of Adventure, an Asheville-based nonprofit, is changing the way communities come together—empowering people of all abilities to live active and healthy lives. Our mission is to open doors for the disability community to recreate; our method is to lean on the passion and experience of volunteers who are eager to serve. We believe we are of best service to ourselves when we are of service to others. Therefore, empowering a team of volunteers to serve as adaptive sports instructors, guides and mentors enables Peace of Adventure to promote wellness, foster empathy, and build inclusive communities dedicated to being stronger than the sum of its parts.
At the root of Peace of Adventure’s mission is our reliance and dedication to volunteerism. Resilience studies show that we are more resilient when we have strong support from our community, but can achieve more resilience when we are giving support to others! Therefore, empowering volunteer force to lead programs enables Peace of Adventure to promote wellness, foster empathy, and build inclusive communities dedicated to being stronger than the sum of its parts. We encourage and accept a wide range of community volunteers eager to serve!
Statistics show that about twenty-two veterans a day commit suicide, and Peace of Adventure believes this is largely due to the struggle many veterans face in their transition to civilian life. Peace of Adventure believes the skills gained during military service—leadership, wilderness experiences, community engagement, etc.—make veterans great volunteers. We believe in inclusion and often find the best way to serve veterans is limit their isolation from society and include them in communities dedicated to serving others.
