Additional Details

Last updated in 2012, DAPCEP seeks to update their update Wordpress CMS website with latest updates/plugins, keep responsive, fast. Revise site navigation, minimize clicks. Make audience based vs subject based - for public, parents, donors, students, alumni etc. Ensure site is video-forward, compatible with virtual learning platform(s). Overhaul SEO analytics, tags, etc. Counsel on best way to use site for donations, volunteers, etc. Advise if Drupal, Joomla platform should be utilized.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a person resource, text, multimedia content, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a person resource, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,762 , allowing us to better reflect the activity of our organization online, redirect funds towards virtual programming and other new/needed activities.

The project will help DAPCEP better address the needs of its audiences. As programming moves more virtual, more use of online tools, video is needed, and the site should align with virtual learning tools. DAPCEP want to better use the site for engaging donors, volunteers, etc.

Our Mission

DAPCEP is an educational 501(c)3 organization providing high quality and standards-aligned science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programming to youth in metropolitan Detroit. Our mission is to increase the number of historically underrepresented students who are motivated and academically prepared to pursue degrees leading to STEM careers. We achieve this with supplemental educational programming for Pre-K to 12th grade students by partnering with schools and universities to develop and facilitate engaging curricula. We are driven to increase the number of students who graduate from high school and pursue degrees and/or careers in STEM fields.

What We Do

We work to ensure that minority students who possess the talent, intelligence, and capacity to excel in STEM fields receive the training and preparation required to develop their skills and build confidence. We believe that with access to high-quality academic experiences at an early age, these students will grow into STEM leaders and help ensure that the future workplace is diverse and reflects the unique strengths of people from an array of backgrounds.

Our students receive the introductory training needed to increase their aptitude in STEM topics. Through hands-on experience in a variety of courses and program offerings, DAPCEP helps students develop the motivation and awareness of skills necessary for academic achievement and successful careers.
