Welcome to NFTE New York Metro’s Volunteer Homepage
Since 1987, NFTE New York Metro has served over 40,000 students. This year, we will deliver entrepreneurship education to over 2,100 students in nearly 30 public schools located in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens. We also support an active group of 33 Certified Entrepreneurship Teachers (CETs) that teaches NFTE’s high school entrepreneurship program or middle school Exploring Careers program to students.
Our more than 350 volunteers are entrepreneurs and business professionals with diverse backgrounds and expertise. These dedicated individuals expose NFTE students to different industries by connecting classroom learning to real-life business operations. Our volunteers’ efforts have a direct and lasting influence on the personal and professional successes of our young people.
