Alternatives to Violence Project Basic Workshop
Peace Resource Center
3850 Westgate Pl, San Diego, CA 92105, United States
The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) began in a New York state prison in 1975 and now serves people in prisons and communities across the United States and in 55 countries, including Guatemala, Rwanda, Israel/Palestine and Kenya. AVP has proven itself in schools, NGOs, government agencies, prisons, refugee camps, post-civil war and genocide affected communities, with veterans, the homeless, at-risk youth, and gangs.

AVP workshops consist of structured experiences—there are no lectures or PowerPoint slides—that build a joyful and caring community and provide safe opportunities to practice skills in communication, cooperation, and conflict resolution.
In the Basic workshop you'll connect deeply with others, laugh and have fun, share and be really listened to, while learning ways to positively transform conflicts toward constructive outcomes.
Treat yourself to this workshop purely for personal growth, or make it your first step toward facilitating AVP workshops in prisons or the community. The workshop runs from 8:30am to 5:30pm on Saturday and Sunday, November 5th and 6th, and participants should plan to attend both days.
Registration is by donation, with a suggested sliding scale of $25 to $125. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. For scholarships or special needs, please contact the organizer, Steve Gelb at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 619-851-7123.
