This project is

In Progress

Matched with:

Lensay A.

This project will save us $6,750, allowing us to facilitate 13 weekly workshops for vulnerable youth (1 semester).

What We Need

  • Overhaul of the UI on Organization's existing website, or UI design for a new website
  • Clear map of website’s structure with wireframes to accompany the layout; wireframes may include homepage, content navigation page and content presentation templates
  • Flowcharts or specifications for the interactive features of the website

How This Will Help

We offer dynamic and well respected programming but our website needs to reflect our work and impact. Creating a more professional website will allow us to engage new stakeholders.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a website & content which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have images and media and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

I keep a sign in my doorway to remind me to keep going when things get tough and also that words don't have to be complex to make a difference: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. -Dr.Suess
