Program Management Certificate

  • Management. Goals. Vision.

"It was very informative, confidence-building and engaging. As someone who's not yet directing, it really gave me good background on a lot of issues that I can hopefully be better prepared about."

Spring 2022 PMC Dates - for current or rising Directors:
TBD in April for first-year and rising leaders
PMC is celebrating it's 15th anniversary! It has adapted over the years while containing tried and true wisdom of managing programming toward social justice!
Every service program aims to partner with community, make a great experience for volunteers, and have an impact on constituents. Programs are only as good as their leaders. Directors manage a vision, people, money, partnerships and the logistics. The Program Management Certificate is professionally designed to include essential tools applicable to all volunteer programs. By attending, directors build their own skills while learning ways to improve their programs. As part of a small learning community, directors also build lasting relationships with other programs, enabling better collaboration and best practice sharing. 

    PMC is recommended for rising leaders of any service program (desire to become director in the future or stepping into the role next semester) and required of PBHA student directors in their first semester in leadership if not already completed. Please contact Talia Levitt at with any questions regarding PMC. Click here to register for the PMC training.
