Since 1987, the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) has been inspiring young people to pursue educational opportunities, start their own businesses, and succeed in life. NFTE is the only global nonprofit organization solely focused on bringing entrepreneurship education to youth in low-income communities.

To date, NFTE programs have served over 500,000 young people globally and 25,000 locally. Currently, NFTE programs are active in 12 countries and 21 U.S. states. Here in the DC Region, we have programs in 29 schools and reach close to 1,100 young people annually.
