DPMI is a professional certificate training for current and aspiring international development and social change practitioners.
Through a 2 or 3-week training, participants develop skills in program design and evaluation, strategic partnering, and facilitation. Learn more about our curriculum.
Learn from internationally-renowned development practitioners with over 100 years of relevant work experience.
We host an intensive DPMI training every January in Monterey, California and Kigali, Rwanda and every May/June in Monterey, DC, and Nairobi.
The DPMI Rwanda training is hosted by Partners in Health (PIH), a NGO co-founded by Nobel Peace Prize nominee and famous author, Paul Farmer. Participants complete a client project for PIH during the training.
Starting in 2015, the DPMI Kenya training will be jointly hosted by Locus: the Point of International Development, an alternative development organization dedicated to leveraging the best of local and global initiatives through strategic partnerships, focusing on local solutions, and integrating approaches to development.
DPMI is open to graduate students, current practitioners, career-changers, and a limited number of outstanding undergraduates.
