Teenagers? Teach Them Project Management!

PMI Educational FoundationThe Project Management Institute Educational Foundation (PMI EF) aims “to enrich lives through knowledge of and education in Project Management Life Skills.”

As a scholarship recipient, PMI EF paid for a portion of my doctoral studies. PMI EF contributes greatly to our society. I particularly like the Project Management Skills for Life course.

If you have teenagers or if you work with youth on various projects (e.g., church groups, community groups, Scouts), this free course is an excellent way to expose them to the project management profession. Youth can download the handbook and instructors can use the PowerPoint slides to teach the materials.

Most children aim to be doctors, lawyers, firefighters and police officers when they grow up. I am hoping that someday, we will start hearing children who would like to be project managers when they grow up!
