About Us

At AVI, we’re dedicated to the prevention of power-based personal violence in our community. Power-based personal violence is an umbrella term we use for sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking. We work to prevent violence through a collaborative team of professional staff and student interns and peer educators.

We also support and empower survivors of power-based personal violence through our clinical services, provided by two licensed counselors. These counselors can offer brief-individual counseling, advocacy services, and assist in navigating any legal, medical, or administrative options a person may wish to take.

If you’d like to make a clinical appointment, please visit To learn more about our SAVE PE, Intern or Street Team programs, please visit our Get Involved tab. If you’d like to host a program or spread prevention messaging, please visit our Prevention Programming tab.
