GREENBELT, Md. - July 28, 2019 - PRLog -- Over 20 youth completed more than sixteen hours of condensed project management training and worked on a real-life project plan. Islamic Leadership Institute of america, a leading youth development and leadership training nonprofit has been offering the Youth Project Management certification program to hundreds of youth teens since 2009.

This cohort  represents the first group to complete the certificate program, completing courses YPM 101 Introduction to Project Management and YPM 102 Project Cost Management, where the youth learned how to develop a project charter defining a project's mission, vision, objectives, goals and key performance indicators. They also learned how to define the work required to deliver a project's intended outcomes, and capture the work in a work breakdown structure. the youth learned advanced estimation techniques for activity duration, and cost estimates, concluding with income statements and balance sheets.

The training component was followed by a fierce competition across six teams who presented to a panel of three professional judges. Each team had 15 minutes to share the full project plan for holding a youth career empowerment fair. Judges grilled the teams on various details of their project plans for another 10 minutes each.

"It was a very inspiring experience and I would be glad to be involved for any help needed", stated Sherif Elsafty, a professional project manager who manages large complex IT software development projects for the Veterans Affairs, and one of the panel of judges assessing the work of the youth project managers.

Youth who receive the Islamic Leadership of America certification are eligible to work on real-life projects, such as planning youth training workshops, advocacy events and meetings, social services and needs of homeless and low income families, fundraising and other strategic elements.

ILIA is a non-profit 501c(3) educational and research organization promoting youth development and leadership training. More information about the youth project management certification program can be found at
