Since 2007, NFTE Philadelphia Metro has provided more than 5,300 students across Philadelphia with the tools and mindset necessary to prepare for successful futures in school, college and the workforce.
We deliver entrepreneurial programming to 19 high schools and 2 middle schools in metropolitan Philadelphia in the neighborhoods of Northeast Philadelphia, North Philadelphia, Center City, South Philadelphia, and West Philadelphia. We also have schools in Camden, NJ, and Newark, DE.
Volunteers are essential to the student experience. Our volunteer-guided field trips to local businesses and class visits from entrepreneurs and business professionals help students to connect their classroom learning to the world around them. During our culminating events of the year, volunteer judges offer validation and authenticity to the student business plan competition series.
