This paper explains the management process and execution of a project based senior project painting for a nonprofit. The main aim of the project was to give back to a charity organization that offers their time and energy to support their local community. This project occurred during the COVID 19 pandemic, and appropriate safety protocols were used including in communicating with the club representatives. The Pismo Beach Lions Club building was weathered and in need of fresh paint. The original color logo of the Lions Club is blue and white and was preferred that the building remain the same colors. My senior project was to make a project plan and schedule, gather materials, secure funding, and perform the preparation, primer, and painting of the building. In addition to painting the building, it was important to organize the work and coordinate with the client. Overall, this paper focuses on the project process, courses at California Polytechnic and State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly) that prepared me for this project, the deliverables, and lesson learned.
