Teach Entrepreneurship

Teachers across the country are using entrepreneurship education to motivate their students to find new levels of achievement in school and in their lives. This teaching methodology links classroom work with the creation of practical business models and real-life opportunities. As a result, young people come to understand the importance of education to their long-term goals and personal success. This means more students stay in school, complete their studies and go on to post-secondary education.

You can get started with entrepreneurship education by using the free teaching materials here on Connect. Or you can sign up for professional development training through NFTE University or Biz Builders, intensive three or four-day courses that will give you the fundamentals of the entrepreneurship education approach.
