NMC redesigns website for national nonprofit based in NC

New Media Campaigns recently launched the redesigned website of the National College Advising Corps, a program that hires and trains college graduates to staff under-served high schools across the nation.

NCAC, headquartered at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, teaches these advisers to assist students with difficulties involved with higher education such as financial aid and college applications. The program is based on the University of Virginia's College Guide Program, which emerged in 2005, and is particularly focused on helping students who will be the first members of their families to attend a college or university.

NCAC wanted a cleaner, more vibrant design in order to resonate with their engaged, civic-minded website visitors. The site was redesigned from a previous NMC creation to stay modern and includes updated functionality.

NMC created a homepage slideshow to visually demonstrate the advising role NCAC has had on the community and a sidebar spotlight on service lets visitors get a personal feel for the advisers that make up the core of the organization.

NMC custom built a password protected portal for both current advisers and Program Directors so that they can upload and share resources and files in an always-accessible online directory.

NCAC has been featured in The Washington Post, Dan Rather Reports, and several other publications. The NCAC is making strides in the way of secondary education and the website created by NMC illustrates this achievement.

New Media Campaigns was excited to work with NCAC on a project that seeks to help teenagers across the nation. The company looks forward to the success of the program and is proud to be a part of the process.
