Win-win: Student web developers partnering with local non-profit organizations

When future web developers get to build their portfolios and local non-profit organizations get excellent new websites, the result is a win-win for our community.

SCC students from the Multimedia and Web Design program recently worked with leaders from the Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Charles County and from Sweet Celebrations to build their websites. The students were able to meet with their clients and divide tasks among them such as graphic design, content management and programming. They had to work together as a team to achieve their goals.

“The best part was getting the experience working with a client,” said Michael Powell, a 2017 SCC grad who earned an Associate of Applied Science in multimedia. “Learning how to talk with them, what questions to ask, and getting their feedback was helpful.”

“We want to express our gratitude for this class taking on such a project that encumbered so many hours and talent,” said Linda Sanchez, chief executive officer of the Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Charles County. “We are proud to move forward with a new and exciting look.  The content in the renewed website provides our parents and the community the opportunity to view our programs, events, volunteer opportunities and much more.  The Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Charles County has so much to offer and we feel the new website will provide this information to the community.  Thank you  St. Charles Community College for your kindness in sharing the time and talent of your students and instructors, Jane O’Donnell and Julia Eudy, to make this happen, www.bgcstc.org.”
