Impact statement
This project will save us $6,772 , allowing us to create long term sustainability.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Feedback on the current website’s layout, user functionality, visual design, content, and other key features
  • Clear articulation of the Organization’s goals for the website
  • Recommendations for improvements to help achieve the Organization’s desired goals
Additional Details

We would like a website audit to help inform our redesign. We will be integrating our current website with HubSpot. We have a kids makerspace and a teen production lab and will be hiring a youth workforce to make corporate gifts using a 3D laser cutter. We want to map the journey of the audiences we see as our main "customers." These would be: youth, volunteers, corporate gift buyers and educators/parents. We would like an assessment that helps us generate great ideas for doing this.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an okay website that needs updating but clear goals in mind, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a team of three people who can work on this, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

This project is important because we want to roll out a small catalog of products by this fall.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.

Project Plan

Prep: Goal Setting
  • Volunteer Manager provides overview of current website and any past analysis
  • Professional connects with Volunteer Manager for a brainstorming/overview session and gathers information on the Organization’s goals, target audiences and desired functionality or uses of the website
  • Professional and Volunteer Manager outline next steps and timeline for the project
Milestone 1: Initial Review and Feedback

  • Professional analyzes current site layout, visuals and content, and delivers a draft document detailing the strategies, objectives and recommended tactics for proposed changes to the website
  • Volunteer Manager reviews draft and provides feedback to the Professional
Milestone 2: Final Website Audit
  • Professional delivers final strategy to the Organization after incorporating feedback, and provides recommendations for future overhaul or redesign efforts, based on staff capacity and budget
