The Cleveland Council on World Affairs, in partnership with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is hosting a delegation of nonprofit leaders from Belarus through the Community Connections Program. Brian Sooy has been invited to share best practices in nonprofit branding, marketing, and communications in the digital and social age.
Cleveland Council on World Affairs is hosting a group of 10-nonprofit professionals from Belarus for a three-week exchange program on capacity building and organizational development.
Recognizing that the nonprofit sector is highly undeveloped in Belarus, Sooy will be sharing with nonprofit leaders about best practices in nonprofit marketing, campaign management, web development, social media, and engaging citizens online.
The Community Connections Program is a USAID program which offers home-stay based practical training opportunities in the U.S. for entrepreneurs, local government officials, legal professionals, non-governmental organization leaders and other professionals from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan
The Community Connections Program is administered in Northeast Ohio by the Cleveland Council on World Affairs, with funding by the Bureau for Europe and Eurasia at USAID.
