AVP Basic Workshop

The Alternaves to Violence Project

January 12 - 14, 2018

  • AVP is dedicated to reducing violence: on the streets, at work, in schools, in homes, and in relationships everywhere

  • AVP provides tools for creative, nonviolent resolution to conflicts used by peace workers such as Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Jesus of Nazareth, and many others

 The Basic AVP Workshop is fun and empowers personal growth—an interactive, intensive,

2½-day experience that hones interpersonal conflict-resolution skills. Experiential exercises, small groups, and one-to-one interactions build community and trust around the themes of:  

Affirmation & Self Esteem

Communication & Cooperation

Creative Conflict Resolution

Mission Statement: AVP is an all-volunteer organization offering experiential workshops that empower individuals to liberate themselves and others from the burden of violence. Our fundamental belief is that there is a “power for peace” in everyone, and that this power works through individuals who are open to it to transform violence to nonviolence. AVP builds on a spiritual base of respect and caring for self and others.
