Opening and Community Building 

This session was one of the most highly rated VIRTUAL session from last year's Annual Gathering. Join us to reconnect with old AVP friends and meet new ones. Learn how Concentric Circles (or some variation thereof) and Light and Livelies can be done online. Learn a few skills on ZOOM, making it easier to participate in subsequent sessions.

The concept of Open Space allows for non-predetermined groups to form and discuss in depth topics. Are you interested in gathering with other youth in AVP? Do you want to meet with everyone that identifies as a person of color? Have you recently read a book or article that you'd like to discuss?
