Make connections with new friends?


JOIN US! The
Alternatives to Violence Project (Los Angeles) is hosting THREE basic workshops in the months of December and January. Each workshop is FREE.

The 'Basic' is a unique experiential workshop designed to build community, enhance participants' awareness and self-esteem, and strengthen skills in conflict transformation, nonviolent communication, and problem-solving. This is the first step towards becoming a trained AVP facilitator, able to facilitate groups in communities and prisons across the country.


Each online workshop takes place over one month in a series of 8 mini-sessions (2.5 hours each). These workshops also include anonymous participation in a research study on the effectiveness of AVP, and ask that you complete two questionnaires at the beginning (1 st session) and end (8 th session) of the workshop (this time is built into the workshop schedule), with the option of participating in a focus group interview after completing the workshop.
