About the event

Create a Culture of Peace

Learn to be a peacemaker! This workshop uses our shared life experiences, interactive exercises and games to explore how to respond with nonviolence in situations where injustice, frustration and anger can lead to aggression and hostility. This 4-day program is your first step in training to lead peace programs in your community.

This AVP workshop can help us:

  • Understand why conflict happens
  • Manage strong feelings such as anger and fear
  • Build good relationships with other people
  • Communicate well in difficult situations
  • Be true to yourself while respecting other people
