The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a network of independent not-for-profit
grass-roots volunteer groups offering experiential workshops on creative conflict
transformation in prisons, schools, and the wider community. The Help Increase
the Peace (HIP) Program is an adaptation of AVP for schools.
These workshops empower individuals to liberate themselves and others from the
burden of violence. The fundamental belief of AVP is that there is a power for peace
and good in everyone, and that this power has the ability to transform violence.
AVP builds on a spiritual basis of respecting and caring for self and others.
