Welcome to NFTE Greater Los Angeles’ Volunteer Homepage
We deliver entrepreneurial programming to 26 middle schools, high schools, and youth organizations in the Greater Los Angeles area. We have program sites in Downtown, South LA, West LA, Pasadena, Pomona, and San Fernando Valley. Our volunteers are essential to every NFTE program. Students often tell us that a highlight of the program is working with the different professionals who volunteer of their time.

Our volunteers’ efforts have a direct and lasting influence on the personal and professional successes of our young people.
