Project Details

What We Need
  • A complete overhaul of a website’s current visual design (including creation of a customized theme for Wordpress if needed)
  • Design direction based on Organization's desired branding and style preferences
  • Mock-ups of key site pages
Additional Details

A UX Designer and a Ruby on Rails programmer to redesign site with mobile responsiveness and internationalize the site with our Spanish translation (insert the "es:" text into the code).

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a complete Ruby on Rails site, with new test environments, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a volunteer team overseeing integration with Salesforce, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $9,186 , allowing us to keep the cost of our missional internships course at $25 USD so thousands of low-income Spanish-speaking students may learn how to make a difference in the world for Christ.

We are about to release a renewed and updated site. We need to accomplish two things on the Ruby on Rails site by this summer: 1. Better UX Design & Mobile Responsiveness. 2. Post the Spanish version with internationalization in the Ruby code.

Project Plan

  • Volunteer Manager works with a developer (independent of the project), to implement the design

About The Org

Our Mission

YWAM Converge is a network of ministries in YWAM International. The YWAM Converge Network is led by a growing core group of Managing Partners who lead regional and vocational ministry teams focused on one or more spheres of influence, such as the arts, business, education, media, and more.

Vision: Making a difference. Spiritual formation of students for the transformation of nations.

Mission: YWAM Converge connects students to missions projects.

What We Do

At YWAM Converge we believe everyone has a calling, following the crowd will not bring transformation, and a personalized missions project is the best way to discover your purpose.

The Converge internships program and its corresponding online course serves our vision by developing missions-minded leaders for every sphere of influence. We facilitate opportunities for students to learn how to make a difference by designing and implementing their own personalized missions projects. Our target students are from anywhere; they are ready to go into ALL the world, including EVERY area of influence. (Mt. 28:18-20). In addition to the Converge Course, we develop curriculum and resources, conduct retreats, short-courses, and broadcast the Converge Stories podcast.

Since 1989, we have coordinated 75 internships (over 340 students from over 110 universities to over 40 countries) to help start businesses and plant churches, install water pumps, establish therapy routines for disabled, perform research in clinics, develop nutritional plans for hospices, and create curriculum for schools. With Converge platform, we are preparing to match, equip, and send over 300 interns per year.


Michael provided help with our CSS. He worked with our Ruby on Rails site. He helped us with some urgent fixes to make the site more mobile responsive. He could not do everything we needed, however he was very willing to learn and help where he could.
