SimplyCast is proud to announce its sponsorship of Youth Art Connection (YAC).

SimplyCast has provided YAC with an Agency 365 account to help manage their events and communications.

The sponsorship is part of SimplyCast’s continued community involvement.

Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, November 15, 2016 – SimplyCast, a leader in marketing automation, is excited to announce its sponsorship of Youth Art Connection (YAC).

YAC, founded in 2012 in Spryfield, Nova Scotia, is an organization aimed at working with youth to create lasting, positive change through engagement with various art forms.

Through providing powerful communication technology to YAC, SimplyCast continues to support local community initiatives. Sponsoring YAC enforces SimplyCast’s dedication to supporting the local area and engaging youth.

YAC has grown its activities and impact through grass roots engagement and collaboration. They plan to connect their various existing platforms to SimplyCast, expand use of these platforms, and create processes to engage the various communities and customer groups.

With SimplyCast, YAC plans to gain a detailed understanding of where and how they best engage customers and where they struggle. As YAC launches several major initiatives this year, they will use SimplyCast to properly track partners and interest in their projects.

YAC will be developing a more effective and rigorous sponsorship and fundraising strategy and sees SimplyCast as the centrepiece to this. With SimplyCast, YAC expects to be able to better follow-up with interest from supporters and sponsors as activities grow.

“We are humbled and grateful for this support from SimplyCast. It could not have come at a better time,” said Ryan Veltmeyer, co-founder of Youth Art Connection. “In 2017 we will be launching an ARTpreneurs online tool kit, and engaging communities across the province in ARTpreneurs activities thanks to investments from TD Bank Group, the Telus Community Foundation and provincial government. At the same time, we will be working with the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, the Art Gallery of NS and a growing group of champions to spread the Justice, Art and Youth Initiative to every corner of the province. SimplyCast will be an essential tool to help us reach thousands of young Nova Scotians and communicate with collaborators throughout the province.”

“We are looking forward to working with and supporting the Youth Art Connection,” said Saeed El-Darahali, President and CEO of SimplyCast. “Our technology has the ability to improve communication for all industries, including non-profit, and SimplyCast looks forward to seeing how YAC can utilize it to expand its reach, improve existing communication, and continue to grow and a strong, local non-profit.”

SimplyCast believes that passion and enthusiasm are some of the most important attributes for success. When young people are able to participate in projects they are interested in, they gain experience with setting goals for achievement.
