Our group formed July 22, 2016.  We started teaching kids project management skills 5 months later  (Dec. 3, 2016).  To date we’ve completed 4 Introduction to Project Management and Leadership  classes and 5 kids’ projects.  Our work is Pro Bono, however if you’d like to contribute to the kids program you can do so through our partner the MADE (Museum of  Art and  Digital Education) by clicking here.   Although our expenses are very low, the MADE allows us to have our classes at their facilities and covers our expenses which for now are very low.  The more contributions we receive the bigger projects we can do.

To learn more about our programs, see our Portfolio / Summary of Classes & Projects section and see our calendar below for information regarding upcoming classes, projects and events.

Our Calendar of Events is at the bottom of this page.

 

Help support our first real project
A Go Fund Me Project for Asante Africa Foundation

The PJMan & The StarGazers Kids will use the Project Management and Leadership skills they’ve learn to plan, monitor and execute this project.  In addition, they will develop their own marketing plan, logo, branding and communications plan.  We’ve been meeting twice a month since December 2017 to prepare for this project as well as our Remember Them project.  To learn more, click here.

 

Thank you Facebook Family and Friends……

We are extremely excited to announce that the MADE was invited to teach Scratch classes at Facebook’s 2018 Hackathon for the family of their employees.  In turn, the MADE asked our kids to teach 3 classes.  Saturday, August 4, 2018 the  PJMan & The StarGazers Kids  did an excellent job of teaching beginning Scratch skills to kids ages 5 years old and up at Facebook’s headquarters.  …more coming soon

NOTE: Class Change for October 20, 2018 – Trip to San Francisco, CA
Oct 20 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Instead of our normal classes, the graduate will meet at the MADE (Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment – 3400 Broadway in Oakland, CA) and leave for San Francisco between 8:30 and 9am.

If you plan to attend and are running late, please call Sonja @ 510-575-4322.

In this class, we will learn about some historical sites in Oakland and San Francisco.  We will take pictures and videos for our websites.  Most importantly, we will raise money for our Go Fund Me for Asante Africa (see homepage for more information).  Although we want to raise money, this class will help students to overcome their fears as it pertains to selling.  Why do kids need to learn these skills?  In the very near future, they will need to master the skills of public speaking for class presentations, interviews for schools, jobs and/or programs and as leaders or even when in difficult situations where they may need to speak up for themselves and/or others.

Hopefully, this trip will give them a positive experience that will go along way.

Finally, in terms of project management skills this trip is also a team building exercise.  It will provide another opportunity for the kids to bond.
