Alternatives to Violence Project 

Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP), provides a space for participants to practice transforming conflict into win-win outcomes. No one loses. Conflict becomes an opportunity for greater understanding, an opportunity to deepen relationships. Breathing Space provides a place for practicing transforming conflict in a natural setting. Community AVP (camping) workshops are happening in the Catskills, so dust off your camping gear!! Campfire songs are more than welcome.


The Alternatives to Violence Project is a grassroots, volunteer program dedicated to reducing violence in our lives, in our homes, in our schools, in our prisons, in our streets, and in our society. AVP offers experiential workshops that take place in prisons, schools, and communities. Workshops are typically 23 hours over three days. Community workshops typically begin on a Friday afternoon or evening and run through the weekend. For more information link to:
