This 15-minute video provides a rare inside look at an AVP workshop, providing an introduction to the approach taken by the Alternatives to Violence Project.
Please note: The Miller & Shuford, Delaware Prison 2005 AVP and recidivism study is not fully conclusive that AVP reduces recidivism by 40-45% as stated in the video.
Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a nonprofit organization that creates peaceful solutions to potentially violent conflict. Beginning in an upstate NY prison in 1975, AVP has now spread to over 50 countries around the world. As well as prisons, AVP exists in schools, communities and corporate settings.
This video focuses on AVP within the United States prison system. Experience an AVP workshop behind bars and listen to those whose lives have been transformed by AVP.
