The mission of the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is to empower people to lead nonviolent lives through affirmation, respect for all, community building, cooperation and trust. Founded in and developed from the real-life experiences of men and women in prison and others, and building on a spiritual base, AVP encourages every person’s innate power to positively transform themselves and the world. AVP is an association of community groups and prison-based groups offering experiential workshops in personal growth and creative conflict management for adults and youth. Northcentral PA AVP serves the greater Williamsport area in this capacity.
