The Client

Derrick Brooks Charities has been providing youth services in the Tampa Bay Area since 1996. Creating cultural and social opportunities for adolescents has been a critical mission of the organization since its inception

The Challenge

With the day-to-day operations focusing on youth development, the team at Derrick Brooks Charity needed to find new ways to connect with kids, the community and sponsors. With a non-responsive website and little focus on social media engagement, the organization was missing out on key opportunities to engage its stakeholders in the overall impact DB55 was having on the community.


  • New Digital Marketing Strategy

  • New Responsive Website

  • Video Content

  • Ongoing Digital Support

The team at CCS Marketing worked with the team at Derrick Brooks Charities to build a new responsive website that simplified brand messaging and created a unified platform to host all of its programs. Included in this process was custom video content for the website, e-commerce, updated blog content and social media integration.
