Buncombe Alternatives, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to working with Buncombe County youth ages 11-17 who have made poor decisions resulting in involvement with the juvenile justice system or the behavior management system at a participating middle school. Our organization houses two programs, Teen Court and Earn & Learn Restorative Community Service. No clients may be referred from the general community but youth and adult volunteers are always welcome.

Buncombe Alternatives, Inc. focuses on restorative justice rather than punitive sentencing. All clients involved in our programs are given the opportunity to repair harm they may have caused by giving back to a victim (if necessary), the community, their family, and themselves.
