GLCF grant helps nonprofits improve virtual programming

LOWELL – Virtual well-baby visits for new moms and infants. Monitoring a nest of turtle eggs in the wild. Cooking videos led by a local nutritionist. Online nature walks with a botanical illustrator.

These are just a few examples of the new online programming local nonprofits have created, thanks to technical-training classes from Lowell TeleMedia Center, funded by a grant from the Greater Lowell Community Foundation.

Last spring, when the pandemic forced nonprofit organizations into lockdown mode, they moved their face-to-face programs online. However, as summer fast approached, many realized they needed help creating virtual programming to attract young people.

A baby Blanding’s turtle was hatched from a nest monitored by Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust as part of its virtual summer programming. The LPCT received LTC training to create virtual content as part of a grant from the Greater Lowell Community Foundation.COURTESY GLCF

Three Ways A Premium Domain Helps A Website Grow

CEO, VPN.com: The $1M Domain Name – We help brands, Entrepreneurs, politicians and athletes acquire premium domain names for their vision. 

Harvesting a credible online presence is a critical step toward building a brand — and it all starts with a domain name.

How Dancing Helps Me Unwind After a Long Day

Growing up, I never gave much thought to how much sitting I did in my life. For years and years in school, I would sit in a compact little desk for most of my day. Once I got to college, not much changed — I often found myself hunched over in a desk. And now, as a 24-year-old who works primarily from home, I’ve met my biggest challenge yet: sitting in front of a computer screen all day. As days, weeks, and months have gone by, sitting behind a screen has started to take its toll.

Because I’m quite young, I hadn’t previously considered just how much sitting in front of a computer screen might affect my health and well-being. I mean, I knew I spent a lot of time hunched over, staring at a computer screen every. single. day. And it’s possible I’m starting to notice aches and pains
