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.

Help support our first real project
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.

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.
