Santa Barbara-ALTERNATIVES TO VIOLENCE PROJECT

SBAVP is getting ready to hold post-COVID19 in-person workshops soon with youth and the incarcerated, and we're looking for new workshop facilitators!

Why take an AVP workshop?

  • Laughter, sharing, and crazy games lead to a transformed way of thinking and new skills with people in an AVP workshop!
  • Online/virtual workshop trainings are available all over the country!
  • When you complete an AVP workshop, it will be accepted as part of your training toward becoming an AVP team member and workshop facilitator.
  • This 45-year-old program (in 45 countries) offers effective workshops in prisons, with at-risk youth, and to everyone looking for an opportunity to grow personally.

A list of virtual workshops will be sent to you upon request. sbavp3@gmail.com

Mission Statement

We seek to empower teens and various individuals to become leaders in the community and live nonviolent lives through affirmation, respect for all, community building, cooperation, and trust.

Description

Who is SBAVP?

The Santa Barbara Alternatives to Violence Project is a multicultural volunteer organization that is dedicated to reducing interpersonal violence in our society, exploring different ways of handling conflict, and bringing people together as we seek to better understand one another. SBAVP has offered laughter-filled community workshops in Santa Barbara since 1992. We also offer workshops at the Lompoc Federal Prison! SBAVP is part of AVP California, AVP USA, and AVP International.

Our Approach:

SBAVP offers workshops that aid participants in discovering new conflict management tools, learning about relationships and communication, and building leadership skills, thus enabling individuals to:

  • Build successful interpersonal interactions
  • Reflect and gain deeper insights into themselves
  • Find positive, new approaches to life

The Result:

These experiential workshops empower individuals not only to liberate themselves from the burden of violence, but also to become leaders in their communities.
