WHAT WE DO
Organizations working to improve communities have a big job. We're here to help, whether that means creating the right tool for the job or doing the heavy lifting.
Education & training
Build your capacity
We develop educational materials and trainings on a wide range of topics, from grant writing and partnership development to tobacco and HIV prevention. We create communication plans, toolkits, and guidance documents. For organizations wanting to build in-house training capacity, we even offer curricula with visual-rich slides, in-depth scripts, and print-ready handouts. Materials are customized based on your goal and audience.

We work with clients to craft the right message, brand, and plan for engaging their audience. Our team has experience designing and implementing marketing and outreach initiatives using evidence-based and innovative strategies.
Program design & implementation
