Program 1

NFNC has three programs: 1) Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a highly effective international conflict resolution program. If offers three levels (Basic, Advanced, Training for Trainers) of experiential workshops for adults and mature youth. It focuses on examining the roots of violence, community building, communication skills, and affirmations. 2) One to One Inmate Visitation Program: volunteers visit with inmates at Denver County Jail in response to inmates' requests. Volunteers provide a listening ear, caring presence, and often become a liaison between the inmate and community. 3) Telephone support for inmates and their families.
