ProLiteracy will host their biennial conference on Adult Education in San Antonio, Texas, September 20-22. At this three-day conference, adult literacy practitioners, teachers, tutors, managers, directors, board members, and students will learn new ideas, network, and lead change in the adult literacy field.
The conference will feature new programming strands reflective of current realities: Crisis Management; Distance Learning/Digital Literacy/Digital Equity and Access; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
With over 100 presentations and workshops, programs will have the opportunity to explore how organizations and practitioners can collaborate to build instructional capacity and deliver innovative, effective literacy services that benefit adult learners, their families, and our shared communities.
Keynote speaker, Kerry Suddes from For Impact, will share stories from the field of fundraising as well as innovative ideas that have transformed thousands of organizations and raised over $2 billion in funding.
“As the world emerges from the pandemic and vaccines become readily available, we look forward to holding one of the first in-person conferences this fall," said President and CEO, Kevin Morgan. “The 2021 ProLiteracy Conference on Adult Education in San Antonio, Texas, will be an opportunity for adult literacy professionals to learn about the latest trends in adult education and network with other program leaders from around the country."
