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.
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.

Estimated Volunteer Time (Now – April 30):
|See Scope of Work / Project Steps||Show>|
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
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.
