“This weekend made me feel great about myself and people around me. It will help me not only in conflict resolution, but in general.”

Participants say: 

The Prison Administration perspective: 

"Working with AVP-NJ has been an absolute pleasure"

"The onboarding process was almost seamless."

"I fully endore the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP). This program should be a fixed pillar in prison reentry efforts."

"AVP-NJ understands the prison culture by knowing how to navigate the system."

"The level of interest for AVP surpasses most programs offered at the institution."
