About the event

Learn how to be a peacemaker! 

Do you want to be a peacemaker? Then sign up for this interactive workshop with the Alternatives to Violence Project. Using people’s life experiences and hands-on exercises, we explore how to respond peacefully in conflict situations where frustration and anger can lead to hostility. This is also a first step in learning to facilitate peace programs in your community.

This AVP workshop helps us to: 

  • Understand why conflict happens 
  • Manage strong feelings such as anger and fear 
  • Communicate well in difficult situations 
  • Be true to ourselves while respecting others 
  • Activate the peacemaking skills we already have

When: August 2-4, 2024 (Because all the activities build on one another, you must attend all sessions to receive a certificate of completion) 

  • Friday, August 2: 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, August 3: 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
