Workshops are open to whoever wishes to attend – the only requirement is that participants attend voluntarily. Each of the three levels of AVP workshops runs 18-21 hours and is facilitated by a team of unpaid volunteers. A workshop may span a weekend or be offered in a series of two-day chunks.
Mini-workshops for demonstration purposes are also available. These can help your organization understand what AVP is all about before you commit to a full weekend workshop.
People who have taken the Basic and Advanced level AVP workshops and desire to become active AVP volunteers can take the Training for Facilitators. This workshop qualifies people to join a facilitator team as apprentices.
