In 2020, Tara volunteered with Junior Achievement as a judge for one of their events. Through this connection, we were introduced to the team founding a new nonprofit called iThriveHer. In the beginning, we were excited to advise them on some website enhancements to their DIY website built with WordPress.com. We also worked with their summer intern to do some training on website design and content development.
We were struck by the enthusiasm of the team behind iThriveHer, as well as its mission to expose participants, “ThriverHers,” to the STEAM disciplines through hands-on workshops, training modules, field trips, leadership opportunities and mentoring relationships.
As a result of this relationship, as we entered the second half of 2021, Design TLC awarded our nonprofit pro bono award to iThriveHer.
WordPress for Nonprofit
We started by moving them from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, on their existing hosting account. From there, we discussed their messaging and imagery, using a combination of stock images and their own images to communicate the positive message of iThriveHer. We added the ability to collect registration online for their upcoming 2022 Thriving LeadHers Summit, which will be a free event with interactive workshops and leadership development activities for underserved middle school girls.
We also updated their logo to make it more web-friendly and more usable in different formats and media.
We are excited to see iThriveHer continue to grow its impact on the community to help build the confidence needed for ThriveHers to excel in every corner of their lives.
