Frequently Asked Questions

What is AVP?

AVP is the Alternatives to Violence Project, a program of three levels of experiential workshops that offers tools and sharing to help each of us identify and address the different types of violence we all experience in our lives. The AVP Program section of this website provides detailed information on our workshops.

Is AVP religious?

No. AVP does not support or deny any religious belief system.

Does AVP or AVP International have any political affiliation?

No. AVP prides itself on being non-political. We do, however, work in many situations heavy in political tension. Our work is politically neutral and aims to assist in opening dialogue and creating spaces where persons that may be in dispute can find an equal voice.

What does ‘experiential workshop’ mean?

AVP workshops are spaces where both participants and facilitators are encouraged to share from their personal lives and to work together to discover possible alternatives to real-life situations. This is achieved through a variety of interactive activities. See The AVP Program section of this website for more information on our workshops.

Is there AVP everywhere in the world?

Sadly, no. Visit the AVP Around the World section or look at the bottom of any page on this website to see where AVP is currently active. If you know of an AVP group that is not listed here, please let us know by sending us an email through the Contact form.
