We have some wonderful program pages to share with you. These are great examples of how you can lay out your content for program participants, volunteers, and other people who are involved with or interested in your program. Here’s initial feedback we’ve been hearing from all of you about the updated design features:
- “The sample webpage looks great! I love the ease of navigation and how well it showcases 4-H.”
- “Love the ‘new’ website layout!….Really like the ‘call to action’ addition!”
- “The overall appearance is very aesthetically pleasing….The design helps with visually de-bulking the content.”
- “This looks great! I appreciate that you’ve simplified & condensed the menu.”
- “[It] will really help to showcase the work of the volunteers locally, so thank you!”

About the examples
The above examples were created through a partnership between EESC and these groups. A 4-H and Master Gardener local program was selected from each region. They were selected because they had a lot of wonderful content added to their pages, which gave us a great starting point.
Tips and recommendations for program pages
Think about how your current content will best fit into this style.
- Do you need to craft a more concise program description?
- You can use nested subpages to make the menu not so long and help users find the content they are looking for. Do you need to create nested subpages so the side menu is shorter?
- Programs video tutorial: Learn step-by-step how to apply these designs. Also learn how to create nested subpages on your program pages.
- Program resources video tutorial
- Page sections: See our quick reference showing the different types of designs you can use to format your content. This handout is from our web guide.
