Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
AVP is... An experiential program, helping people change their lives. A community program, offering a new approach for community groups, communication, social service agencies, schools, youth organizations and all who would like to participate. A prison program, helping inmates learn new skills and attitudes that lead to fulfilling and crime-free lives. AVP builds upon a spiritual base of respect and caring for self and others. Though founded by Quakers, AVP draws participants and trainers from all religions, races, sexual identity, and walks of life.

Local groups are connected through an informal California collective of representatives, who bring together facilitators to produce successful workshops. They assist one another by exchanging ideas and working on specific California AVP issues. Until local groups are established throughout the state, the AVP/CA Steering Committee functions as the statewide contact for opening new prison and community programs, as well as developing direction for AVP in the state.
