Big Brothers Big Sisters Launches New Website in 100th Year
Big Brothers Big Sister of Colorado will launch their new website this week. The site was designed by CapTech, a national IT management consulting firm with an office in Denver, CO, who donated their services for the redesign. The site launch comes in conjunction with Big Brothers Big Sisters Week, a week-long celebration of mentoring which kicked off July 22.
2018 is iconic for the organization as it celebrates its Centennial Anniversary. Having a new website demonstrates just one of the many ways Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado (BBBSC) has continued to remain relevant throughout the years.
President and CEO of BBBSC, Dave Ryan, feels being able to adapt and innovate is extremely important to the survival of an organization. "We are excited about our new website launch and the robust information it provides for volunteers, families, donors, nonprofit partners and the media to better understand Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado's research-proven mentoring programs," said Ryan. "We believe that this new site will allow our visitors to have an even more informative experience as we continue to grow our programs and serve children facing adversity in Colorado. Our technology partner, CapTech, has been a pleasure to work with, and we thank them for providing us with best-in-class technology and services."
Not only will the new site be device-responsive, but it will truly tell the story of the dynamic organization by allowing visitors to easily navigate the site. This will help with the recruitment of additional mentors as well as featuring valuable information that donors want to see. CapTech donated over 700 hours of pro bono services to design and develop the new site. "The new website has been created on WordPress, an open-source online platform with a content management backend, that allows BBBSC the ability to quickly update content to showcase their programs, recent news and events," shared CapTecher Jill Palkoner. "With a rich custom front-end design, the site provides a clean, updated experience so that BBBSC can easily create, market, and blog about an upcoming event or program, and allows them to focus on matching more 'Bigs' to 'Littles'."
"We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado to build and deploy an immersive, user-centric experience that supports their mission here in Colorado," said CapTech's Denver office lead Mark Fitzgerald. "As members of the Colorado community, we're thankful for the positive impact of BBBSC on children facing adversity and look forward to being a part of the next 100 years of this great organization."
The site also goes live in time to promote two upcoming Centennial celebratory events including The Big Birthday Bash and Topgolf For Kids' Sake. Learn more about the events planned for the Centennial Year here:
