Description

AVP Training for Facilitaor/T4F Workshop

This workshop is for individuals who have completed the AVP Basic and Advanced workshops and who want to learn how to facilitate AVP workshops. Participants will get introduced to the AVP Basic workshop manual, practice their teambuilding and facilitation skills, develop and practice sharing their own Transforming Power stories, and learn how to plan and deliver AVP workshops as part of a facilitation team.

We are looking forward to welcoming you as an AVP Apprentice Facilitator following your completion of this workshop!

Location: Grady Hospital-Emory Faculty Office Building, Atlanta GA

Saturday & Sunday, January 26 & 27 2019

9:00am -- 6:00 pm, each day

All organizers and facilitators are volunteers. Lunch is provided both days (Sunday we will be having a potluck!) and registration is required for all participants. Registration fees for this workshop include your own copy of the AVP workshop manuals (available to you at a discounted price). You will need to have the Basic manual ($12) during the workshop but are encouraged to purchase the Advanced manual ($20) as well. No one is excluded due to lack of funds.

The AVP Workshop series consists of 3 workshops: Basic/First Level, Advanced/Second Level and Training for Facilitators. Those who complete all three workshops are eligible to apprentice on workshop facilitation teams and to become AVP facilitators.

This workshop will be an Training for Facilitators workshop only. You must have completed a Basic and an Advanced AVP workshop before attending this workshop.

Current AVP facilitators are also invited to attend and participate in this T4F workshop for the full hours. Come get a refresher on your AVP facilitataion skills!

FAQs

What if I am not available for the entire two day, Saturday and Sunday workshop?

This experiential workshop is based on building a community which builds trust among participants and requires that everyone be present for all activities. We certainly understand that this is a significant time committment and ask that you only attend if you are able to fully participate for the two days. You will be surprised how engaging and thought provoking this experience will be!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There are MARTA train and bus options available with convenient access to the workshop location. Parking for this event is available for $6 a day at the Grady Hospital Parking Garage. We will send details concerning exact workshop location to registered participants.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Feel free to email georgiaavp@gmail.com or call Karen at 404-797-8079 with any questions about AVP or this workshop. We welcome the opportunity to discuss our work in the community and in local prisons.

What's the refund policy?

We will take registrations and cancellations until Wednesday before the workshop at 9:00 pm. We must have confirmed registrations by then in order to purchase and prepare materials and food for the workshop. This program is offered entirely by volunteers.

We have established a minimum and maximum number of participants per workshop and will refund all registration payments if the minimum number of participants is not reached.
