Sustainable Social Impact

At the Center for Design Kindness, we help social impact organizations achieve sustainable impact through human-centered programming, training & development, and effective communications & advocacy.

Human-Centered Programming

Solve challenging human problems in deep partnership with your audience. Bring their stories, goals, challenges and creativity into your programs. We can help you and your audience co-design, co-implement, and co-evaluate solutions that get at the heart of their challenges and goals. Check out our free tools and guides to get you started and learn more on our blog.

Learning & Development

Our experts in learning strategy, human-centered design, and humanitarian services provide hands-on tools, templates, and training to prepare and inspire your team, partners, and beneficiaries. We can help with a strong and flexible learning strategy tailored to your organization.

Communications & Advocacy

Communicate the true impact of your programs through stories and meaningful metrics. We will help you share this message while keeping the dignity and agency of your beneficiaries front and center.
