Welcome to AVP California! AVP is "Alternatives to Violence Project," a program working to reduce violence by learning about relationships, communication, and conflict resolution through workshops in prisons, jails, and the community. AVP California is volunteer-run, non-profit, organized by local councils around the state, and part of AVP USA and AVP International.

In 2015, AVP California councils around the state organized over 300 workshops in 25 prisons and jails, with over 5,500 participants, almost 60 workshops in communities throughout the state with over 650 participants.1 (244)
