The mission of AVP/Nebraska is to empower people to lead nonviolent lives through affirmation, respect for all, community building, cooperation, trust, and conflict resolution skill building.
Founded in and developed from the life experiences of prisoners and others, and building on a spiritual base, AVP/Nebraska encourages all individuals’ innate power to positively transform themselves and the world.
AVP/Nebraska is an association of community groups and prison-based groups offering experiential workshops in personal growth and creative conflict management for adults and youth.
AVP/Nebraska is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Alternatives to Violence Project USA. We work closely with the national and international organizations. AVP workshops started at Omaha Correctional Center in 1995, at Lincoln Correctional Center in 2003, at Nebraska State Penitentiary in 2007, and in the Lincoln community in 2011.
