PMI Chapters in Argentina are working thoroughly in developing Project Management awareness and professionalism in the region. Additionally, since 2010 the two Argentinian Chapters are following PMI Educational Foundation programs promoting project management for educational good for elementary and high school students, as well as the community at large.

PMI Educational Foundation, PMIEF (http://www.pmi.org/pmief/), is the philanthropic arm of the Project Management Institute, PMI ((http://www.pmi.org/).

Within the framework of the PMI Educational Foundation Chapter, PMI Buenos Aires Argentina Chapter developed some activities in the past years.

A team of volunteers of PMIBA delivered lectures and workshops of “Introduction to Project Management” for high school students who were participants in the “Company” program organized by Junior Achievement Argentina Foundation, JAA, (http://www.junior.org.ar/). Junior Achievement is an international educational foundation whose mission is to generate youth entrepreneurship to enable them to achieve their goals within a framework of responsibility and freedom.

Also under the PMIEF program, the PMIBA team of volunteers composed by Adriana Morando, Gerardo Blitzer, Gustavo Flouret and Julio Rossini has worked with Asociación ORT Argentina (http://www.ort.edu.ar/) in adapting the curriculum of the high school by incorporating Project Management practices aligned to PMBOK® as well as training the teachers.
