David Urias, PhD

Global Education Programs Specialist
Greater Philadelphia Area
I represent the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF®). We are a nonprofit, public charitable organization and philanthropic arm of the Project Management Institute, the recognized global leader in delivering best-in-class project management curricula and certification for the project management profession.
Our mission is to empower youth to turn their ideas into reality through the acquisition and application of project management competencies. We do this by integrating PM into the classroom through imbedding PM language into curricular standards; by offering professional development trainings to teachers and educational leaders; and by providing no-cost resources to help implement project management knowledge and skills for youth. Resources include: mentors, curriculum, scholarships, grants, project management career information and presentations, as well as, program development and implementation guides.
