AVP Santa Barbara is seeking people who want to make a difference in the level of violence around them and in the community. We offer 16 hour basic, advanced, and facilitators workshops which are ways to build trust and develop transformative ways of resolving conflict. We are in need of others who would be willing to facilitate workshops after taking the workshops themselves. We are also in need of people who can design flyers, support a social media campaign, provide food for workshops, provide rides to youth and help us plan our programs.

AVP/USA is an association of community based groups and prison based groups offering experiential workshops in conflict resolution, responses to violence, creative conflict management, and personal growth. The national organization provides support for the work of these local groups.

Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) helps us explore the power we all have to change hostility and destructiveness into cooperation, community, and justice.

In an environment of respect and trust, build self-esteem, connect deeply with others, have fun, and practice communication and creative conflict resolution to transform yourself and your community.
