Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

We are looking for a website that will be easy to update which does not require developer skills set. Also, we need to be able to interface with software or a website database that will allow us to collect and track student membership replacing what we are currently doing with Excel worksheets.

We would prefer using Squarespace as the CMS website template. It is important that we have an easy interface for updates and the ability to integrate a database application for membership collection and tracking.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a logo and brand language being used online, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a Facebook with 640 likes, Twitter account. In addition, we have a list of contacts, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We need a professional website that will help attract donors and grant funders as well as new board members who want to be associated with our organization once they see the mission and vision conveyed through the website design. Our website has to be youth-focused.
