Since 1991, NFTE has provided more than 16,000 students across New England with the tools and mindset necessary to prepare for successful futures in school, college and the workforce.
We deliver entrepreneurial education to high schools across southern New England. Our program sites range from eastern Massachusetts, to Providence, Rhode Island, and west to Hartford, Connecticut. Volunteers are essential to the student experience. Our volunteer-guided field trips to local businesses and class visits from businesspersons help students to connect their classroom learning to the world around them.
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.
As a volunteer, you can select from several exciting opportunities that suit your schedule and interest. By lending your talent and time, you can present new perspectives on the NFTE curriculum to students. Our program manager and staff are available during volunteer assignments to lend individuals support and guidance. To find an opportunity that interests you and fits your schedule, review the brief descriptions of our four principal volunteer positions here.
