PMIGL's Serve Squad program was developed by a group of professionals with decades of Project Management experience and a commitment to social good. We decided it was time to focus our skills on workforce development training to help youth prepare for the 21st century, post-COVID-19 world. Microsoft and LinkedIn projected PM to be the #3 most in demand occupation by employers post-COVID 19. We are a program that is affiliated with the Project Management Institute (PMI)-Great Lakes Chapter. PMI chapters are located in 80 countries as the global leader for PM certification.
