I had a wonderful experience today helping chart the course for bringing financial literacy to all young Americans. I joined the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability in presenting our findings to President Obama.
As we prepare for the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013, NFTE Greater Dallas has a great deal to brag about!
The school year is in full swing and have already held so many great events. Our first event took place on a rainy Saturday in September when we had over 100 students come together and work with several volunteers to review and revise their submissions for the World Series of Innovation. NFTE Dallas had over 150 submissions with two business ideas making it to the final round. Congratulations to all.

The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) is seeking a seasoned leader to join them as they work to bring entrepreneurial learning opportunities to young people across the country. NFTE is a growing organization that will need an experienced Talent professional to provide support to all of their human resources functions as they prepare to grow.
NFTE's program offices anticipate helping more than 18,000 students discover entrepreneurship this school year. That's nearly 2,000 additional students compared to last school year.
The South Florida program office, in 2011-2012, reached the most students overall, while the NY Metro program office brought NFTE to the most schools. The chart below shows the number of schools where NFTE is at work and the number of students who completed the program.
