Teach Them Well – School Volunteers Website Launches

The children are our future. Teach them well and let them… benefit from your volunteer activities. Nashville Interactive recently designed and performed a large portion of the front-end build for the newly launched schoolvolunteers.org. The site is a tool used by volunteers and coordinators to log and track hours as well as for posting and finding new volunteer opportunities. The target demographic for this particular website design dictated that the site have a very quick load time while retaining a professional and branded look. The site uses sparse and well optimized images and relies on web-safe fonts and css backgrounds for most of the design. The target users are also almost exclusively using various versions of Internet Explorer, including our old friend IE6. This meant that backward compatibility was a must for this project. The site is a great resource for a great cause and will be a great resource for users.
