Join us on 28 November 2017 for an Open House based on Project Management for Social Good®, a collaborative event between and the PMI Educational Foundation, the philanthropic arm of PMI®.  Project managers have a unique skill set that they can use to bring value to their communities through partnerships with youth, teachers, and nonprofit organizations.  During this event, we’ll explore content from practitioners that are leveraging their skills and knowledge to deliver a huge impact. 

Check out articles from students who have benefited from learning about project management as a life skill, and learn about resources available to start a similar initiative in your own local schools.  Meet an author who is writing fiction books for youth exploring PM concepts as his “Project Kids” build a tree house, create a haunted house, and plan a Valentine’s Day Dance.  (Plus download your copies at no cost!)  Learn your role as a project manager in building the pipeline of future PMs.  Plus, meet individuals and chapter leaders that use their PM skills in a pro bono capacity to magnify the impact of their community nonprofit organizations. 

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to explore opportunities to give back in your community with your practitioner skills.  We’ll unlock webinars, blog posts, and articles around this important theme, and open the floor for discussion about how to get involved and – more importantly – why it matters.  Download our program guide to receive a unique one-day-only Open House digital badge on 28 November.

Like Rami, I'm interested in the program guide mentioned. I checked the PMIef but was unable to find references or links to it.
