Project Management for Change, the nonprofit organization that is responsible for PMDoS, is accepting applications for volunteer PM coaches and indications of interest from nonprofits.

What is the PM4Change Coaching program?

This is a volunteer run coaching program to support the PMDoS nonprofits by answering project management questions and providing support and resources to the nonprofits as they work on their projects.

Why are we doing this?
So, the nonprofit got their project scoped and a work plan created, but now what? We had two great PMDoS events in the DC area, but we want to have a greater impact than even our awesome single day event can create!

Sign up here to volunteer as a coach.

Are you a nonprofit that could use some additional project management guidance? Click here to sign up. There is no cost for this program. We will answer your project management questions, point you to free resources, and help you keep your project(s) moving!

Additional information will be made available to those that sign up for the program.
