Networks Web Site Creation Tool helps center directors create customized
one-stop-shop Web sites that:
||Increase resident and community|
awareness of center programs and services.
||Connect residents to local resources, such|
as employment agencies, hospitals, colleges and universities,
||Help market the center to current and potential
partners and stakeholders. |
||Keep constituents apprised of center activities
or events. |
||Highlight center and resident successes. |
addition, centers can use the Web Site Creation Tool to meet Standard
8 in the Model center classification process, which requires a center
to maintain a Web site in order to achieve advanced center classification.
