For Administrators

NFTE is committed to re-engaging students who are at risk of dropping out and putting them on a path to graduation.

Our award-winning, innovative and experiential program teaches young people critical skills such as reading, writing and math while they learn the steps to write and defend a business plan based on their own original idea.

Our Impact

At NFTE, we believe that entrepreneurship education for all youth will grow the global economy and provide opportunities for young people to own their future.

Entrepreneurship education is the fundamental tool for creating an ongoing cycle of learning and innovation that will bring sustainable job creation and re-creation. Young people face historic increases in joblessness, an unemployment rate that is three times higher than that of adults, and a rapidly shifting economy.
