Alternatives to Violence Project
An awesome and fun way to better ourselves.

The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a worldwide program offering 16 -20 hour workshops to youth, community members and incarcerated individuals through the world. Our local group in Antelope Valley is currently training volunteer facilitators for these workshops.

These workshops address better, more peaceful ways of handling daily conflicts and building stronger relationships.

Those wanting to train as facilitators, will attend 3 training classes,; Basic (Peaceful Relationships), Advanced (Cultivating Empathy) and T4F (Training for Facilitators). Each workshop is $25 each (scholarships available).

Workshops are usually held on Sat & Sun, some are virtual, some are in person, and are in English. If one brings their own interpreter, other languages are acceptable.
