How We Work With Nonprofits

Students discussing project with volunteer

All over the world, nonprofits help young people build life skills.

Often, these skills are delivered to young people through projects, and our services can complement and enhance nonprofits’ offerings.


Are you interested in partnering with us and meet the requirements below?

Join us in our mission to help empower youth with project management skills to help them achieve their goals and make their dreams a reality.


A New Focus on Partnership


We seek to build long-term relationships that help our nonprofit partners integrate project management in their youth programs as well as build their own project management capacity. 

Our ideal nonprofit partners have:

  • Youth participate in projects in their programs 
  • A primary focus on working with youth aged 5–19
  • Programs in at least two countries
  • Willingness to provide feedback on outcomes and participate in other knowledge-sharing activities
  • Interest in engaging with project management volunteers

What We Offer our Youth-Serving Nonprofit Partners: 


Every organization has different challenges, and we do our best to provide support where it’s most needed. 

We offer a mix of the following services to our nonprofit partners:

Program Development Assistance

PMIEF leverages its project management resources in partnership with nonprofits to enhance their programs and strategies. We also provide pro bono training and support to help the delivery of the nonprofit’s mission, and enrich the building of key life skills for youth.

Ongoing coaching

We know that the long-term stability of these programs requires more than just a successful rollout. We provide ongoing coaching to our partners to help them overcome roadblocks and address change management challenges.


Connecting project management volunteers with youth-serving nonprofits is key to our refreshed strategy. 


PMIEF awards a limited number of grants each year to nonprofit organizations, supporting the incorporation of project management skills into their programs as well as internal capacity-building. Learn more about our grantmaking.
