The FWPMI Academic Outreach Team is requesting volunteers

to present to TCU students!


Last year, the Academic Outreach team presented “Managing Life’s Projects” at TCU Neely School of Business virtually and it was a huge success with fantastic feedback. We are looking to continue this partnership this year but NEED YOUR HELP!

We need volunteers to present either virtually or in person Thursday November 18th at 9:30, 12:30, 2, and 3:30. Volunteers will not be responsible for developing content. The Academic Outreach team will work with any volunteers prior to Nov 18th to answer questions regarding the presentation.

With this opportunity comes PDU’s for volunteers! If you are interested in helping, please contact Hope Olsen, VP External Relations at  or call/text at 469-955-8820



Academic Outreach needs YOU to be a MENTOR

for Middle School Kiddos!!!



The Academic Outreach team in partnership with the PMI Youth and Social Impact group (Formerly PMIEF) have an exciting opportunity for volunteers to be mentors Fort Worth Middle School kiddos for the Future Cities Competition ( while receiving PDU’s!

Future Cities Competition “is a project-based learning program where students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future and engages more than 45,000 middle school students each year throughout the United States and abroad.”

Fort Worth PMI historically has participated in Future Cities Competition as judges. Specifically, FWPMI judges the best Risk Plan and presents and sponsors the “Riskonator” special award.

We have an additional opportunity to volunteer as mentors to a Future Cities team. The volunteer requirements would be 4-5 hours in the month of Oct, Nov, and Dec over the phone/zoom. The mentors will be guiding and directing students in Project Management practices so they may present their best Future City at the competition in January.

If you are interested in volunteering to be a mentor, OR if you are interested in being a judge this year (the competition will be conducted virtually) please reach out to Hope Olsen, VP External Relations at  or call/text at 469-955-8820.


Academic Outreach Team

This team strives to advance the profession and practice of project management by developing relationships with local academic institutions (middle school, high school, colleges and universities).   They create awareness of PMI Education Foundation and academic standards and work with these institutions to create demand for project management programs, clubs and curricula.

Do you remember being a student? If you could go back and give your young self the project management skills you have today, how would your personal and academic life have been different? Or consider this: How much more could your favorite charity accomplish if it applied project management principles?  And what is the likelihood that project management tools could impact the future of classroom learning and nonprofit success?

It’s not only possible, it’s happening!

When you partner with the PMI Educational Foundation, you empower people to become leaders and effective problem-solvers. You help them reach their full potential to change the future. PMIEF has inspired people around the world to use project management for social good®. We hope you will make a gift of $25 today to ensure that this work continues!

You know the power of project management in your own life; now give back by renewing your support today. Change lives through your gift to PMIEF
