Web Development for Learning Together

Learning-Together-w:slogan-2c

The Cause

Learning Together’s mission is to meet the developmental, educational, and health needs of young children of all abilities.  We believe in pursuing and nurturing inclusion, diversity, integrity, quality, interdependency, and innovation in our daily operations. Through this pursuit, Learning Together’s vision is to create a Community of Promise – where children of all abilities are able to reach their full potential with the support of their community and families.

The Challenge

We are a smaller nonprofit but we have some great, unique services we provide for kids and families in Wake County looking for inclusion. Our website was built on the Drupal platform, and our staff struggles with keeping it up to date and building new pages and features. We would like to work with a web designer who can help us design and launch a WordPress website and then teach us how to operate and update it properly.

The Project: Web Development

Estimated Volunteer Time (Now – April 30):

36-39 hours

See Scope of Work / Project Steps Show

End Result

The project will result in the following deliverables:

  • WordPress site with basic WordPress features (blog, pages, contact, social media buttons, etc.)
  • Integration and set-up of up to 3 additional plug ins specific to Learning Together’s needs (Ex: special forms, commerce, etc.)
  • Host a training workshop (no longer than 2 hours)for staff and select volunteers on how to utilize and update the WordPress site and its features

Impact

This project will raise our profile in the Triangle among both donors and families in need of early childhood services, which would give us more stability for our existing programs and families. We offer extremely high quality services to the families we reach, but we don’t usually reach them through our website. It’s 2015, it’s more than time for that to be a given. We also have some unique perspectives and information about topics like inclusion that we lead our field in, and being able to share that on our website with anyone with an internet connection would help us share our mission beyond our classroom walls.

Graphic Design for Learning Together

Learning-Together-w:slogan-2c

The Cause

Learning Together’s mission is to meet the developmental, educational, and health needs of young children of all abilities.  We believe in pursuing and nurturing inclusion, diversity, integrity, quality, interdependency, and innovation in our daily operations. Through this pursuit, Learning Together’s vision is to create a Community of Promise – where children of all abilities are able to reach their full potential with the support of their community and families.

The Challenge

We are a smaller nonprofit, and we use several events throughout the year to raise much-needed funds for the kids and families we serve. We have a great, unique event that can be marketed better and can reach a bigger audience. We would like a professional update to our event branding so that we can make this great event idea make an even bigger financial impact towards our mission. The event is a rock, paper, scissors tournament, which is unique in the Triangle (possibly the state), and is extremely popular with previous attendees. This is our fifth year, and while it has grown each year, it is still struggling with gaining a wide audience, and it needs to be more clear through its branding and presentation that it is for adults, not kids.

The Project

Estimated Volunteer Time (Now – April 30):

24-34 hours

See Scope of Work / Project Steps Show

End Result

The project will result in the following deliverables:

  • An updated event logo
  • A set of 5 to 10 graphic elements (clip art, buttons, etc.) for use on the organization’s event website or other materials. May include the creation of up to 2 online or print ads, if needed
  • Logo and graphic elements submitted to the organization in vector and ready-to-use online formats.

Impact

This project will have a significant impact on our ability to serve the community. The project will raise our profile in the Triangle among both donors and families in need of early childhood services, which would give us more stability for our existing programs and families. It will make our employees more effective in their time management, and it will help provide a fun, novel, and unique event to the Raleigh area.
