About AVP Delaware
AVP Delaware offers the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) in Delaware communities and prisons. AVP is an international volunteer progam that enables participants to deal with potentially violent situations in new and creative ways.
Who We Are
AVP was introduced in Delaware through community workshops in 1988. The first prison workshop was held at SCI in 1990 and it became a regular program in the Delaware correctional system in 1992.
Where We Started
AVP started Green Haven Prison in New York in 1975, and now also operates in communities, schools, colleges and conflict situations worldwide.
What We Do
We don’t lecture or preach. Our experiential workshops use the shared experiences of participants, interactive exercises, games and role plays to examine the ways in which we respond to situations where injustice, prejudice, frustration, and anger can lead to aggressive behavior and violence.
