Special Sessions Possibilities

Many youth organizations found the Project Management Skills for Life® program to be very beneficial to their members, particularly in the areas of project planning, execution and leadership.  PMI MN is open to any youth organization to request a special PMSFL session for their members.  In the past, we have done special PMSFL sessions for a local robotic club, church youth organization, and conservation leadership club.

If interested in setting up a special session, please contact PMSFL Program Manager to indicate the desired date, time and location.  Please provide 2-3 options and allow at least two months leads time to set up the session.  We do require minimum of four participants, and maximum of 30.
