AVP provides Conflict Resolution and communication Workshops focused on cultivating a spirit of peace within prisons and local communities. Conflict is a normal part of life, and can be used as a tool for change and transformation. AVP workshops create a safe space for dialogue and use the shared experiences of participants, interactive exercises, games and role-plays to see beyond differences, to explore common ground and to discover the power within ourselves to transform our lives.

AVP is looking for volunteer facilitators to help organize and facilitate workshops inside communities and prison facilities. As a facilitator, you would join a global community of local council's focused on providing communities and individuals the tools for transforming conflict to positive change.

To become a facilitator, volunteers must complete three AVP provided trainings. Once these workshops are completed, facilitators will have a flexible schedule to facilitate workshops as part of a team of facilitators. Upcoming opportunities include:
