PMI is offering its Project Management for Nonprofits program documentation to individuals in leadership positions with PMI Chapters and Communities of Practice.
PMI Buffalo’s Project Management for Nonprofits (PM4NP) provides project management training, mentoring and tools at no cost to Western New York nonprofit organizations In its first two years of existence, the program has provided a project management skill set to 38 individuals from 32 community nonprofits and is being used as a model for similar programs nationwide. The 2011 PMI Leadership Institute Meetings (LIM) in Dallas, TX featured a presentation on how the program was developed.
The PM4NP Program was designed as a project deliverable in 2009-2010. The pilot program was developed and deployed in 2010 with a team of 12 Outreach volunteers from PMI Buffalo, in collaboration with the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County.
