    Terms of Reference – Alternative to Violence Program Training

    Somali Program

    AFSC believe that young people can positively transform the prevailing context of violent conflicts in Somalia into a more secure, productive, and just place. Consequently, AFSC is implementing a Peace-building program in Somalia targeting the youth, with the approaches of empowering them with peacebuilding, leadership, advocacy, and livelihood skills. The livelihood skills are meant to empower them to earn sustainable incomes and avoid the vulnerability of recruitment by violent militia groups. The peacebuilding and leadership skills are to empower them to take leading roles in peace-building activities in their localities.

    Thus, AFSC is planning to conduct an Alternative to Violence Program (AVP) which is one of the approaches to peacebuilding among the youth. AFSC intendeds to conduct a 5-day AVP workshop which is an intensive, learning experience that teaches interpersonal conflict resolution skills through a series of step-by-step processes. These experiences in small groups and one-to-one interactions build a sense of community and trust through exercises focusing on:

    Affirmation — Building self esteem and trust.

    Communication — Improving both listening skills and assertive methods of expression.

    Cooperation — Developing cooperative attitudes that avoid competitive conflicts.

    Creative Conflict Resolution — Getting in touch with the inner Transforming Power to resolve violence. Role plays provide an opportunity to explore this power and learn new and creative ways to respond to real life conflicts in the youth’s lives.

    The objective of the workshop is as follows:

    To conduct a three (3) day Basic Alternative to Violence Program (AVP) training and two (2) Day introduction to Advanced AVP for the youth and partners staff in Mogadishu and Dhobley.
