Many Ways You Can Assist
Train to Become an AVP-Certified Workshop Facilitator
2. ADVANCED WORKSHOP - The Advanced Workshop continues by using the tools and skills examined in the Basic Workshop, and moves into more complicated areas which support and reinforce these. Self-empowerment begins to move forward into role play planning and execution, as the facilitation team and the entire group of participants decide on a theme and direction for the workshop. Role plays and other exercises may aim at a given topic chosen by the group.
3. TRAINING FOR FACILITATORS WORKSHOP - The "T4F" Workshop takes the experiential nature of these explorations to a new level. The participants divide into groups, followed by each group planning a "session" (segment of a workshop with exercises and "light n Livelies"). Each team has a turn at facilitating with the other teams playing the part of participants of a basic level workshop. Completion of the T4F Workshop certifies participants as "Apprentice Facilitators".
4. APPRENTICESHIP - After completion of the Basic, at least one Advanced, and the T4F workshops, an Apprentice Facilitator may continue training toward becoming a Certified AVP Facilitator. This involves facilitating Basic Workshops as an apprentice, mentored by experienced facilitators. The period for this phase is typically assisting with facilitation of three or more workshops, during which time both the Apprentice Facilitator and the facilitator-mentors reach a comfort level about the level of ability to facilitate workshops...still with other facilitators, but with less guidance needed. When the apprenticeship is completed, the apprentice is certified as an AVP Facilitator.
5. FACILITATING - After apprenticeship, facilitators may continue assisting with local workshops or join other groups of AVP facilitators anywhere in the world. Eventually, some may choose to start a new local AVP group in an area where none exists (two facilitators required, preferrably one a "trained Lead Facilitator"). Some may take AVP to new countries, while others may begin using AVP skills and exercises in another compatible organization (under a name other than "AVP workshops").
Promote AVP and its Workshops
• Sitting at booth tables handing out and posting flyers and brochures assistance by facilitators from other areas and by interested local residents, at local events, at events such as ex-offender fairs in the Los Angeles area, and at local parolee orientations. Eventually, new local facilitators were trained and also assisted with this vital effort. Some would attend events on their own, networking around southern California.
• Allowing the posting of flyers and posters in the windows of their stores, or setting up information tables out front
• Local television, radio and newspapers provided interview spots or placed information about upcoming events in the media.
