Description

Learn a new way to make a real difference in our community
Take a Kern County Together workshop

ENJOY a hands-on, experiential, conflict resolution workshop where you’ll connect deeply with others, laugh, share, listen while learning ways to reduce conflict in your world, your classroom, your family, or at work. Meet people of different cultures in your town.

  • TAKE NO NOTES - Come prepared to discover new ways of approaching disagreement.
  • Treat yourself to this workshop purely for personal growth. Or make it a first step toward facilitating ALTERNATIVES TO VIOLENCE PROJECT (AVP) workshops in prisons, the community or classroom.
