Project details

What we need
  • Set up of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS) like Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: We recommend that you do a Website Content Plan project first, so that you have all the content ready for your new CMS-based site. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily - no coding required!
Additional details

I have a wordpress website. We are looking for an updated theme that is easy for our staff to make real-time edits. We also need someone to look at our backend and make sure we have all of the correct plugins to ensure our site is healthy.

What we have in place
  • We currently have Resources, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a responsive staff, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to further impact our young men by putting a greater emphasis on our postsecondary and adult training programs.

This project is essential as it addresses a fundamental challenge we've faced: the lack of true ownership and control over our website due to restrictive and complex themes. Transitioning to a CMS-based WordPress website will empower us with unparalleled freedom and flexibility in managing our content, layout, and functionality.
