Mission Statement

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.

Over 15 years experience in the community with diverse groups of people. I have seen people who have taken the training, change positively and motivated to employ the same positive energy and experience to others. It's been a life changing program for me hence giving me space to learn much about myself . I want to always learn by reaching out to others.
