Volunteers for Educational Foundation – bringing PM to schools

PMI Educational Foundation has material what can be given to schools for teaching basics of project managements to students.

We have volunteering opportunities for persons who wish to bring PM information to schools. Often this school that the one where one’s kids are going and we wish that our children are provided with basic information early in their schoold career and thus have benefits of PM knowledge already during their school years.

You can be voluneer by ‘adopting a school’ and we also offer coordination position who will help and work with the volunteers in this area.

The volunteer shall contact school and work through the material with teachers, enabling teachers to use the material in their work. Intention is that volunteer will not be working directly with students, but supporting teachers as required.

To volunteer, please contact: vesa.koskela( at )pmifinland.org
