Bring the power of entrepreneurship education to young people in your community!
If you serve young people in low-income communities, NFTE's program could help your students improve their academic, business and life skills while forging new paths to success.
NFTE's programs are geared toward high school and middle school students. Our unique teacher training is required to become a Certified Entrepreneurship Teacher (CET) and be part of a NFTE program.
Our CETs use an exciting, experiential curriculum that brings business concepts to life, such as a field trip to a wholesale district followed by a “selling event” at the school or organization, and business plan competitions.
How to Bring NFTE to Your Community
- If you work at a school where at least 50% of students qualify for free or reduced price lunch, find out more about how you can become a NFTE teacher .
- Do you represent an established nonprofit/charitable organization, educational institution, community-based organization, or government agency that would like to offer the NFTE program? If so, you may qualify to become a NFTE licensed partner .
- If you are not in an area where NFTE is located and you don't have the resources available to become a licensed partner, you might be a great candidate for our BizBuilders program! This 3-day workshop provides the same hands-on training provided to our teachers through NFTE University.
The next BizBuilders training is July 10-12, 2012 in New York City. Registration and materials cost $1500. A detailed program for this session is available, and registration is now open .
- You will learn how to teach the NFTE curriculum, as well as receive a full set of curriculum materials, lesson plans and ideas for activities.
