Welcome to NFTE Bay Area

NFTE Bay Area works with 30 teachers across 19 schools in 6 districts to deliver entrepreneurial programming to our 1800 students. Our program sites range from San Francisco to the East Bay and include schools on the Peninsula and San Jose. Volunteers are essential to every NFTE program. Our students often tell us that a highlight of the program is working with the different professionals who volunteer of their time.

Our Volunteers

Our volunteers are diverse individuals—corporate executives at major national and international companies, entrepreneurs, young professionals, retired executives, and mid-level managers—who represent all aspects of business operations. They are enthusiastic about entrepreneurship and helping students define their pathway to prosperity. Our volunteers’ efforts have a direct and lasting influence on the personal and professional successes of our young people.
