Use your website design skills to support a small business owner

Save to Favorites



Background: Now more than ever, small business owners need help transforming their business potential into reality. Volunteer your marketing expertise and help a small business owner take their business to the next level!

The Opportunity: Having a website is essential for them to survive but also sustain a longer-term delivery or e-commerce-based model. However, many small business owners don’t have the budget, time or skills needed to design a simple website for their business.

That’s where you come in! Our website design project is the perfect opportunity if you are looking to volunteer your time and talent to support small businesses and the innovators behind them.

  • Are you a good fit? You have at least 3 years of professional experience in website design and familiarity with some popular platforms such as Squarespace, Wix, Shopify, Wordpress and GoDaddy, and are located in the United States.
  • What will you be doing? Once approved as a volunteer, you will have access to our project list and website design projects available. You will then connect one-on-one with a small business owner to scope out the project and deliverables, and ultimately assist them in creating or improving their website.
  • What is the time commitment? Website design projects typically last between 30 and 45 days, depending on your availability. This includes some preparation and design time (flexible to your schedule) and interactions with the small business owner (via email, phone or video conferencing). This is a limited-scope opportunity with a clear deliverable and project end date.
  • Does Start Small Think Big provide resources to get started? We provide information about the small business and website needs, and, If available, a design brief from the small business owner with input on their brand colors, fonts, requested functionality and other relevant information about their business.

Ready to use your skills for good? Join our passionate community of volunteers by completing and submitting your application here: We welcome multilingual volunteers, particularly those able to support Spanish-speaking small business owners.
