Project Type: Web Design & Development, Posters, Lanyards, T-Shirts Details
Girls Rock Campaign Boston is a Boston-based non-profit organization that offers a volunteer run summer program that teached girls aged 8-17 to play instruments and start their own rock band. GRCB is part of the national Girls Rock Camp Alliance.
We first began working with GRCB when our lead designer KJ Parish volunteered to teach guitar to kids during the summer of 2011. KJ’s passion for this organization inspired Team Spruce to jump in and offer services in other areas as well, including design for both print, web, and even collateral.
The website was a major undertaking since GRCB is a highly popular organization with a huge volunteer base with ever-growing camper applications. It seems the numbers nearly double each year, and the organization was suffering from a lack of streamlined web technology to effectively communicate with their network of volunteers, campers, parents, and general public, and they needed a system that would allow them to accept online applications and process application fees. Our mission with the new site was to produce a new process – one that could better serve the organization’s needs for today, and grow with them in the coming years.
The new site process applications and allows administrators to manage both volunteers and campers, and application fees are accepted via Paypal. In addition, site administrators can also post news events, edit all pages on the site, and when camp sessions are over, they can be added to the “Yearbook” – an archived collection of photos, band names, posters, and information for that session.
