Youth Education Program

PMI Minnesota’s Youth Education Program 

The Minnesota Chapter of Project Management Institute (PMI) has teamed with PMI’s Education Foundation (PMI-EF) to provide children and young adults with Project Management training and materials. We offer classes for kids and have partnered with other organizations (such as Boy Scouts of America’s Northern Star Council). By partnering with other youth organizations we are able to offer classes in multiple venues and provide mentoring for educators and youth coaches.
