Alternatives to Violence Workshop
AVP is an important outreach of Friends and friends, promoting peaceful solutions to conflict and violence or potential violence, both physical and social. The project began in prisons as a collaboration between people imprisoned and Quakers. The center of AVP is transforming power, which in itself changes lives.
We practice community and skill building. You will learn:
- To speak honestly without attacking
- Offer support for taking risks
- Practice resolving daily conflicts
This basic workshop is the first step to becoming an AVP facilitator for those interested.
Please join us in this exciting opportunity of learning, community and outreach—for both teens and adults.
