A Recap of the Snow Speaker Series, Funded by the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust


ProLiteracy just wrapped up its fourth and final event in the Snow Speaker Series, funded by the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust. ProLiteracy used the live events to address today’s rapidly advancing economy, shifting demographics, and budget cuts that literacy and other human service providers face as significant challenges. The Speaker Series addressed topical issues to help organizations better serve clients, increase efficiencies, and ultimately provide more adults the skills they need to succeed.

A Series for Nonprofit Success

This series spanned from September 2016 through June 2017. The live events were held in ProLiteracy’s Syracuse headquarters and were attended by representatives from nonprofit organizations throughout Central New York. The events were also live-streamed via YouTube at no charge to our member programs across the United States. 

The topics the series covered were social media, advocating for your program, collaboration and strategic partnerships, and volunteer recruitment and retention. Syracuse-area experts led the discussions and answered questions from the live in-studio audience and ProLiteracy’s members that were viewing online.
