If you are a budding (or experienced) Web Developer with a passion for beauty and functionality, then we would love to have you help us transition our website to WordPress.  This is an unpaid volunteer project which can be conducted remotely (communication with staff will be via email/Zoom).

Working in collaboration with the Executive Director and senior staff (most of whom are non-technical), this project will migrate the core pages from our existing website (https://chessctr.org/), which are mostly prose and images, to WordPress using an off-the-shelf WP theme (although we're open to design improvements you may suggest or want to undertake).

Nearly all of the current content is static and there is no blog. We do have donate buttons and registration functions that connect to third-party services. The entire site is about 40 pages; but after the core pages are migrated, existing staff will work to transition and update remaining content using your guidance/training.

Our ultimate goal is a more aesthetically pleasing, functional, and most importantly easy to maintain (for non-technical staff) website to replace our legacy PHP website.

Our timeline is to complete the migration of core pages (about 10 of the 40 or so total webpages) to WordPress by early January, 2021.

Volunteers should:

  • Have experience building a WordPress site from scratch
  • Have some experience writing PHP, JS, HTML, and CSS
  • Be able to work independently and remotely

An interest in Chess and/or non-profit organizations is a plus.
