Project Management for School Students
PMI Kerala Chapter

'Sarvam Organic', the home gardening project of PMI Kerala Chapter for the school forum members, has been a huge success. Close on the heels of this initiative, the chapter arranged a session on 'Project Management as a Life Skill' for the school forum members from Sarvodaya Central Vidyalaya, Thiruvananthapuram. Liji Elizabeth Thomas, PMI Kerala Chapter volunteer and PMI Kerala-Whiz Talk speaker, conducted the online session on 27 March. It was attended by students from 8th, 9th and 11th grades.

Ms Thomas introduced the fundamental concepts of project management with suitable examples as well as specific project references to the schoolchildren. The students actively participated in the interactions. This session was a part of Kerala Chapter’s social outreach program for the 5-to-75 target group.
