Our offerings are always tailored to each project, and may include:

  • coalition building
  • navigating community controversy

  • workshops on collaboration and equity
  • facilitator training – including youth,
  • designing and implementing community conversations,
  • strategies for recruiting participants
  • family and community partner engagement
  • analyzing and reporting on findings from conversations
  • and planning steps to move from talk to action.  

The first step is always a conversation with us. You can reach us by email at or by phone at 603.862.0692. We look forward to working with you!
