Catalyze Research and Ideas for Action

Through skilled facilitation, CURE creates spaces and opportunities for shared learning, collaboration, and collective action. Using participatory methods and processes, we co-design and facilitate interactive and engaging meetings and programs that connect with and draw on participants’ experiences, strengths and collective wisdom.

Our planning and implementation services include facilitation of strategic planning processes, event and program design, and  full-scale management of complex initiatives requiring coordination of communications, partners, and resources, including:

  • Convenings
  • Cohort and learning programs
  • Campaigns and special initiatives

Our community and stakeholder engagement services are designed to help organizations effectively reach internal and external audiences. With extensive on-the-ground experience with high-stakes campaigns and initiatives, we can ensure  that communities are engaged in intentional and meaningful ways. We bring the required sensitivity and know-how to reach diverse populations including members of groups that have historically been excluded from planning and decision-making processes.

Whether you require immediate project-based assistance or a long-term partner to support your outreach and engagement efforts, we can help. We provide customized services including:

  • Program and Project Management
  • Participant recruitment, street-based/intercept outreach
  • Communications Planning
  • Partnership Development
  • Content/Material Development (for  issue briefs, websites, fact sheets, videos and other media)

We also work with clients to conduct rigorous evaluations that demonstrate impact and provide data to improve outcomes and enhance organizational effectiveness.
