For Nonprofits

Group of volunteers conversing

We partner with youth-serving nonprofits committed to a long-term collaboration with PMIEF that enables young people ages 5 to 19 to achieve their goals and to make their dreams a reality.

The comprehensive suite of products and services we offer build the project management capabilities of nonprofit professionals and volunteers so they thoughtfully integrate project management into their programming. Our shared commitment to youth helps ensure they acquire and apply the life skills necessary to lead happy, productive lives.

Our Top Resources for Nonprofits


When we partner with a nonprofit, we work with them to develop materials tailored to their specific audiences and programs. Additionally, we offer a number of generalized resources for nonprofits to help nonprofits understand project management, use it to become more effective, and incorporate project management content into their youth programs.
