The Summer 2023 Cohort has finished the 10-week program! We are excited to celebrate the incredible group of volunteers and small businesses that spent their summer building their online presence with the re:Bloom program!
August 3, 2023
As the days grow colder and shorter, there is a feeling that summer is fleeting. When we look back on our summer at re:Bloom, we celebrate the incredible group of volunteers and small businesses that spent their summer building their online presence with the re:Bloom program!
The re:Bloom program would not be possible without our team of volunteers. The Summer 2023 businesses had 15 volunteers from 5 different organizations working on their web presence. The volunteers worked on teams of 3 to consult directly with clients and provide a tailored experience that helped small business owners develop their branding, grow their digital presence, and learn how to maintain their tech independently. Throughout the program, volunteers spent an average of 10 hours per week doing research, developing and designing, user testing, and providing final training documentation. If you’re interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities, please visit our volunteer webpage.
We are excited to share the small businesses that completed that 10-week program and to share their updated websites!
eduFAB is dedicated to curating and sharing resources to catalyze the potential of digital fabrication maker spaces for authentic student learning in K-12. During the re:Bloom program, the team updated eduFAB’s website by improving responsiveness, providing a contact form, redesigning the site map, updating 6 webpages, providing 8 training videos, and more.

With Goddess Care Shop, every woman has the freedom and luxury to choose how she wishes to express her divine self.

Sejin Plus is transforming textile waste into desirable, useful, and usable building materials. The company worked with re:Bloom to create an American/English version of the business's Korean website. The team built 9 web pages, developed 3 infographics, and completed thorough research on competitors within the businesses industries to gain insight into developing an effective digital presence.

We are proud of the work that was completed over the summer by our small business owners, volunteers, and staff. As we enjoy the last few weeks of summer, we remember that the seasons are another opportunity to re:Bloom. Stay tuned for our Fall 2023 Cohort that will be announced soon!
