Here are some of the questions we are most frequently asked about AVP in NH:


I am interested in participating in the Basic Workshop, but am curious about how safe it is to go into the prison?

Since 1992, when workshops were started in New Hampshire at the men's prison in Concord, there has never been a single incident in which any of our AVP outside volunteers (facilitators or participants from the community) were put at risk.
The AVP program is one of the most well respected and highest regarded programs by the inmate population.

How much does it cost to attend one of the prison workshops?

Nothing. In accordance with AVP policy, there will be no charge for anyone participating in an AVP workshop that takes place in any correctional facility.

How soon can I participate in my Basic Workshop?

Check the upcoming schedule and see when and where the next Basic Workshop is that you'd like to attend. Each facility has a contact person we refer to as the Facility Coordinator. The names of each of the facility coordinators are listed on the schedule page below the schedule itself.
Just by clicking on the appropriate facility or contact name, you can email that coordinator and make the necessary arrangements. It's that simple!

What are the costs involved in getting AVP-NH workshops into local high schools?

AVP-NH does not charge any monetary fee for putting on workshops at schools. All we ask is that the school provide a suitable room in which to conduct the workshop as well as food and beverages for the participants and facilitators. Supplies used for the operation of the workshop are provided by AVP. We are funded by donations from generous folks like you.

Is there lodging available if I am willing to travel to New Hampshire to participate in a workshop at the Northern Correctional Facility in Berlin?
 

There is currently no AVP program at the Northern Correctional Facility (NCF) in Berlin. Both AVP New Hampshire and the NCF correctional staff are interested in getting the program restarted there. We currently lack volunteers who are allowed in to the facility. If you are from the Berlin, NH or surrounding area and are interested in helping us get AVP reinstituted at NCF, please contact Charles Oropallo, AVPNH State Coordinator, via email at Charles@AVPNH.org or at 603-924-6759.

Is there lodging available if I am willing to travel to New Hampshire to participate in a workshop at the New Hampshire State Prison in Concord?
 

Through the generosity of local individuals, we currently have lodging available at no charge for individuals willing to participate in workshops at the New Hampshire State Prison at Concord. Either email Barbara Thorngren or call her at 603-878-3076 for further details on this.

Is there lodging available if I am willing to travel to participate in a workshop in Laconia?

Again, through the generosity of individuals in the Laconia area, we have lodging available at no charge for individuals willing to participate in workshops at the Lakes Region Facility in Laconia. For further information on Laconia workshops, either email Mary Alice Warner or call her at 603-253-4342.

Is there lodging available if I am willing to travel to participate in a workshop in Goffstown?

Again, through the generosity of individuals in the Goffstown area, we have lodging available at no charge for individuals willing to participate in workshops at the New Hampshire State Prison for Women in Goffstown. For further information on Goffstown workshops, either email Judy Brophy or call her at 603-673-4821.

I am unable to attend workshops, is there any other way I might be able to help out?
