Facilitation, Workshops, Events

Stamberger Outreach Consulting provides meeting facilitation services, teaches community environmental workshops, and coordinates events.  At Stamberger Outreach, we believe people learn new things through hands-on experience, social interactions, and examples we set for each other, as well as classroom presentations. We provide evaluation of all of our work.

We are experts at bringing communities together to learn from and encourage each other to make changes that benefit the environment and the livability of shared neighborhoods.  We use Community Based Social Marketing techniques at our workshops and other community events to increase participation and public awareness, gain commitments to trying out new behaviors, collect community feedback and behavior data to make our programs more effective.
