Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Welcome to AVP California! AVP is "Alternatives to Violence Project," a program working to reduce violence by learning about relationships, communication, and conflict resolution through workshops in prisons, jails, and the community. AVP California is volunteer-run, non-profit, organized by local councils around the state, and part of AVP USA and AVP International. We invite you to learn about AVP, take a workshop, and even become a volunteer facilitator!
ABOUT AVP WORKSHOPS: Our workshops are experiential, rather than lecture, and draw from participants' own experiences of violence and conflict. Workshops focus on conflict resolution, community building and communication skills to empower healthy interpersonal relationships and communities.
The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a Global, National and State level organization that provides conflict resolution/transformation workshops through local AVP councils. Our community programs include restorative justice programs, school programs, service provider training, community building and civic agency training. At the state level, we work with the California Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) inside of 22 of their 35 prisons working to reduce violence. In 2015 AVP was honored for its work by Cal Volunteers based in the Governor's Office, the San Francisco Community Boards as the Peace Maker of the Year and by CDCR with innovation grants.
