Website Construction (CMS-Based)

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, Drupal, or Weebly . A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have press contacts, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to provide easier access for hundreds of potential participants in our programs. 500 future students and donors/volunteers.

The Jesse White Tumbling Team was created in 1959 to provide a positive alternative to Chicago area inner-city youth. Since then, the organization has grown to include Training, Tutoring and Scholarship programming. This very important project will help us tell our successful stories in addition to attracting engaging donors and volunteers. WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW! (Please feel free to visit our current website -

Our Mission

The Jesse White Tumbling Team was created in 1959 to provide a positive alternative for Chicago area inner-city youth. Team members must stay away from gangs, drugs, alcohol, stay in school and maintain a minimum "C" average.


FANTASTIC! We contacted Julian toward the end of our website project to assist with some project editing. He offered some great suggestions and was able to implement changes right away. Even though Julian is in London and our organization is based in Chicago, he was able to assist us with great ease. Great job! Yvonne C. Jones

It was a pleasure to work with the Jesse White Tumbling Team. The majority of the work had already been taken care of, however I was happy to help where I could.
