This approach helped PMIEF triple the number of teachers trained , as well as increase the number of children served , to 20,000 , in 2015 .
MAKING GLOBAL IMPACT THROUGH NETWORKING
To impact primary and secondary school education on a global scale is not something that can be accomplished alone . It is critical to develop partnerships with organizations that are already working to improve youth education .
That ’ s why PMIEF formed the Project Learning Network ( PLN ) in 2012 . The PLN - a global coalition of 40 nonprofit and educational organizations serving 35 million youth - positively impacts youth education by advocating for 21st century skills , project-based learning and project management expertise in primary and secondary school education .
INTEGRATING PM INTO EDUCATIONAL STANDARDS BECOMING A TREND
A number of US States integrated project management into their educational standards . Some of these states include Texas , Kansas , North Carolina and Wisconsin . This demonstrates the growing value that leaders in education are placing on bringing project management to teachers and youth .
