All kids are welcome to come and participate; however project management roles are reserved for graduates first. Our kids are friendly and welcoming so there have been no issues regarding roles and they are all good roles and everyone is learning about all the roles. We’re learning many skills in a fun and effective way.
Introduction to Project Management Classes for kids are offered 2 times per year. Check this calendar, Eventbrite (PJMan & The StarGazers) and/or www.pjmanthestargazers.com for next class.
PJMan & The StarGazers Graduate Kids will continue Working on Projects (order of projects working on may change):
8 – 8:50 am Asante Africa Crowdfund Execution, Monitoring and Control (https://asanteafrica.org/) As we receive hands-on experience by working on a real project and using project management, leadership, business, marketing, fundraising skills and tools, we’re learning more about the world around us and other cultures while at the same time helping others by raising money to provide uniforms, Electronic Tablets, eBooks and desk for schools in Kenya and Tanzania Africa. We are using the Go Fund Me platform to bring more awareness to Asante Africa Foundation and the work they are doing. See our Go Fund Me page to follow our efforts.
