PM Knowledgeable Youth

Project management skills have been valuable in your life. What if you had learned them earlier? Do you remember your favorite teacher?

At the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF), we’re dedicated to teaching project management skills to young people and teachers around the world — giving them the tools and processes they can use to make a difference in their own communities.

PM Capable Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations do so much good in our world.

At the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF), we know they can be even more efficient and effective at accomplishing their missions if they deploy project management skills.

That’s why we work to build the project management capability of nonprofit and non-governmental organizations, especially in recovery efforts to rebuild after disasters strike.

Your generosity will be enable us to further extend our profession beyond the business setting — to youth, teachers, and nonprofit/non-governmental organization (NGO) leaders worldwide.

A gift to PMIEF of just $25 by year-end will have a ripple effect on the youth, teachers, and nonprofit/non-governmental organizations (NGOs) we work with who make a difference in our communities every day!

 

Together we’ll change the world, one project at a time!
