|Calling All Scouters -- Would You Like to See a Project Management Badge for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts?|
The PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF), a charitable nonprofit organization, is working with volunteers to develop a project management badge for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in the United States.
We know that Scouting is near and dear to a number of PMI members who also wish to see the creation of a project management badge. Currently, we are further along in the application process for a Merit Badge with the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America, which has modified their application process.
One of the evaluation criteria includes a youth evaluation team, which reviews new badge requests and rates them on their youth appeal. If this team does not feel this is a compelling or exciting badge, it does not receive approval.
This is where we need your help. We welcome ideas from you or your children that can help us demonstrate why a project management badge is a fun, engaging, exciting, age appropriate concept for youth.
Please help us make this a success. If you have any suggestions or ideas, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
