Alternatives to Violence Project - Become a Facilitator
Alternatives to Violence Project
AVP-LA is organizing THREE, completely FREE basic workshops online in the months of December and January.
Workshops take place in a series of either 4 or 8 mini-sessions. Details below:
December workshop (8 mini-sessions, one month): https://bit.ly/avpdecember
January Sat/Sun (8 mini-sessions, one month): https://bit.ly/avpjansat
January Sat/Sun (4 mini-sessions, 2 weeks): http://bit.ly/avpjan2
These workshops also include anonymous participation in a research study on the effectiveness of AVP, and ask that participants complete two questionnaires at the beginning (first session) and end (last session) of the workshop (this time is built into the workshop schedule). Surveys are quick to complete, taking only about 30 minutes total, split between the beginning and end of the workshop. Participants will also have the option of participating in a focus group interview after completing the workshop.
Participants who would like to become a volunteer AVP facilitator, can receive further training (This is the 1st of 3). We facilitate with Adults and Youth in the community as well as with inmates in several prisons in our area (clearance required), CIM, CIW, LAC, CAC and CCI.

To empower people to lead nonviolent lives through affirmation, respect for all, community building, cooperation, and trust.
Founded in and developed from the real life experiences of prisoners and others, and building on a spiritual base, AVP encourages every person's innate power to positively transform themselves and the world.
AVP/USA is an association of community based groups and prison based groups offering experiential workshops in personal growth and creative conflict management. The national organization provides support for the work of these local groups
We facilitate 18-20 hour experiential workshops focused on communication and conflict resolution. We help people find their strengths in these areas and to develop new skills. This is a 30-year program presented all over the world in schools, communities and in prisons.
