*** Recommended for Youth, those in school or young at heart ***

“Young people are tomorrow’s global leaders. The youth who learn project management skills are better equipped to become those leaders. Our experience proves learning project management at a young age builds a wealth of knowledge and life skills that can change lives. By focusing our time, effort, and resources on youth, the project management profession can become a global force inspiring future generations.” - Project Management Institute Educational Foundation (PMIEF)

Did you ever think that you can use project management in your everyday life, or with work and school? You can! 

Project Management provides you with skills that are transferable to all aspects of your life. These competencies give you the ability to help you with your budgeting, organization, leadership, presentation, time management, negotiation and many more skill sets.

The purpose of this conference is to inspire and prepare our youth of today with the life skills that come from project management knowledge. Register for this conference, to learn from industry professionals and project leaders.  Our lineup of speakers come with years of experience and knowledge, get to know them a little and review their bio’s below. 

You’ll learn how to leverage project management competencies across our current virtual landscape from school to work and in everyday life. Learning these life skills will help you not only grow professionally but in your personal life, so register today and join us on Saturday, March 26th, 2022.
