What is the Difference between NCPMI and the Pyramid Model Consortium (PMC)?

The National Center for Pyramid Model Innovations (NCPMI) is a federally-funded project established to disseminate effective use of the Pyramid Model to support young children’s social, emotional and behavioral development through a variety of training and technical assistance activities. 

The Pyramid Model Consortium (PMC) is a nonprofit, fee-for-service organization that, similarly, was established to disseminate high-fidelity use of the Pyramid Model.

NCPMI and PMC have similarities and differences.


Both NCPMI and PMC focus on the Pyramid Model as a framework for promoting effective practices for young children’s social-emotional development and both do so with training and technical assistance for states and local programs.  Many of those who developed the Pyramid Model were involved in establishing PMC (in 2014) and are also faculty with NCPMI (beginning in 2017).  NCPMI and PMC intend to establish a partnership in order to coordinate their activities.


NCPMI does not charge for services as it is funded by a 5-year grant that supports activities that are limited by time, work scope and resources.  PMC, on the other hand, is a fee-for-service organization that can accommodate a greater range of requests involving Pyramid Model training and technical assistance.
