Welcome to AVP Santa Barbara! AVP is “Alternatives to Violence Project,” a program working to reduce violence by learning about relationships, communication, and conflict resolution through workshops in prisons, jails, and the community.  AVP Santa Barbara is part of AVP California, AVP USA, and AVP International.

AVP has been selected by SBGives (Fund for Santa Barbara and The Independent) as an organization to donate to this Giving Tuesday.
Donate at: https://www.sbgives.org/…/alternatives-to-violence-project…/also known as All Valuable People.

We invite you to learn about AVP,  take a workshop, and even become a volunteer facilitator!  See our upcoming workshops here.

AVPSB has offered laughter-filled community workshops in Santa Barbara since 1992.
