Project Management Institute Educational Foundation (PMIEF) and Junior Achievement teamed up to develop Project Management for All, a new online game that helps teens explore careers in project management. The game introduces youth to project management fundamentals while complementary videos on the website showcase various careers in the field. Our partnership also allows teens to better plan for the future by providing free resources through the JA Economic Resources website, helping students and adults become educated consumers of economic information, and featuring resources and information from PMIEF. PMIEF also underwrote a Class of 2020 survey that found that half of graduating high school seniors had changed their plans for after high school due to COVID-19. Of those whose plans have changed, more than a third (36%) say they will now work, nearly as many (32%) expect to delay their start date for college, and almost a fifth (16%) changed the career path they wish to pursue.
Junior Achievement USA gratefully acknowledges the Project Management Institute Educational Foundation's commitment to empowering young people to own their economic success.
