Project Board Member
For more than 30 years, AVP Colorado has helped inmates in Colorado's jails and prisons. Through our Alternatives to Violence Project workshops, we give inmates a chance to break the cycle of violence and unlock the strength each of us has to transform ourselves, and thus transform our families and community. Currently, during this pandemic, we are hosting online AVP workshops via Zoom to reach our community. As a member of the Board of Directors, you can help AVP Colorado develop strategies to support and grow this high impact program.
We are seeking individuals who are integrated in the community, with the skills and willingness to perform outreach and engage donors and volunteers.
Over the course of a two-year term, you can expect the following responsibilities: attend monthly board and committee meetings (via Zoom), ensure effective organizational planning, ensure adequate resources and proper financial oversight, enhance the organization's public standing, and serve on a committee.
Please contact us via email to learn more about our current board openings. Thank you for your interest!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

AVP Colorado is dedicated to empowering people within the criminal justice system in Colorado to make positive life changes for the betterment of themselves, their families, and the community at large.
For more than thirty years, AVP Colorado, formerly the New Foundations Nonviolence Center, has helped people in Colorado prisons and communities transform their lives. Through Alternatives to Violence workshops, we give people the tools they can use to learn new ways to communicate and resolve conflict without resorting to manipulation, coercion, or violence.
