In 2019: The Project Management Institute Educational Foundation (PMIEF) narrowed its strategic focus in order to make a greater impact and provide increased value to young people between the ages of 5 and 19 around the world through partnerships with global youth-serving nonprofits.
In 2020: PMIEF’s work and impact were integrated into PMI 4.0—the growth strategy of Project Management Institute (PMI)—in order to support the expanded reach of the PMI Youth Strategy. By doing this, PMI increases its impact so it can support youth between the ages of 5 and 35 and all changemakers between the ages of 5 and 75 through project management.
As such, the responsibility for social impact, also known as Project Management for Social Good®, is no longer a PMIEF focus. PMI has integrated social impact into its global culture. The roles of the PMIEF/PMI Chapter Liaison have now transitioned to Youth and Social Impact Coordinators. The Youth and Social Impact Coordinator position will remain a chapter-designated volunteer whose focus is to support local chapters with outreach in the youth and social impact spaces.
