Future Leaders in Project Management
Future Leaders in Project Management (FLiPM) is a non-profit 501c3 organization founded in Virginia to provide Project Management training for our youth, thereby empowering a workforce of competent, well trained, professionally certified employees needed in over 100 diverse industries.
Our goal is to instill confidence in young people through a program that introduces project management concepts in the 8th grade, and build their skills and knowledge through their senior year of high school. During this time, students are mentored by Project Management Professionals (PMPs), and receive classroom education developed using the Virginia Career and Technical Education CTE) requirements.
After completing the final Project Management course in 12th grade, students who are awarded their high school diploma are eligible to sit for the Project Management Institute (PMI) Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exam. CAPM is an asset that distinguishes candidates in the job market and enhances their credibility and effectiveness working on, or with, project teams.
