Challenge

Beyond our amazing NFTE teachers, a key component of the NFTE program is allowing students to work with local entrepreneurs. Each student deserves to hear from a guest speaker who launched a local company or pursued a successful business career and work with a mentor to help them launch a business. Beyond simply providing an example of what hard-work and an entrepreneurship dream can led to, these mentors also engage students with their business plans.

Solution

This project will allow NFTE North Texas to support 250 volunteers this academic year in our classrooms. Funds will go towards training our volunteers, supporting the classroom programs they assist with, and ensuring student access to guest speakers and entrepreneurial coaches.

Long-Term Impact

By working to keep at-risk students engaged in their school work, NFTE spurs its participants to graduate high school and dare to dream of a brighter future. Whether they pursue higher education, enter the workforce, or start their own business, NFTE instills an entrepreneurial mindset in young people so they can plan for success. Since 1987 NFTE has worked with over 500,000 students across the U.S. and around the world.
