We use digital platforms to collect, analyze, and present information in an easy-to-use, impactful way.
Digital Story Telling
Digital storytelling is a modern tool for keeping the stories and the history of Native and non-Native people alive…in a digital format! We offer 1-3 day trainings for people of all ages who would like to create their own digital story using photographs and their own voice. This is an excellent tool for youth to learn about their heritage and connect the past and present for a healthier community of young people.
Online Technology & Database Management
We are leaders in using online technology to encourage and improve community engagement in prevention activities. Our dynamic firm works efficiently across the US and internationally by utilizing cutting edge technology such as online conferencing, webinars, Cloud computing, etc. This technology is available to all of our projects.

CALCASA (Evaluation Training Series)
We conducted a series of in-person workshops to develop the evaluation skills of prevention practitioners in California. Workshops were offered in two parts entitled “Measuring Sexual Violence Prevention Efforts: Phase I and II.” Phase I focuses on an introduction to basic evaluation skills, such as: Process vs. outcome evaluation; using an evaluation work plan vs. a logic model; Evaluation for improvement; Keeping evaluation feasible and within resources; and Avoiding common mishaps. Phase II covers more advanced topics such as: Data management & entry basics; Getting data ready for analysis, Simple data analyses (using online survey software and hand calculations in Excel), and Viewing online survey results.
