Racing to Support Entrepreneurship Education in Chicago Public Schools!
TEAM NFTE is a group of dedicated runners and supporters who are raising money to support over 2,000 young people from Chicago’s low-income communities that participate in the NFTE program on an annual basis. NFTE is a “mini-MBA” program for Chicago Public Schools (CPS) high school students that engages them in school, teaches them about the market economy and the business plan creation process. Through participation in our program, NFTE students become opportunity obsessed and increase their future education and career aspirations. For more information on NFTE, please visit www.nfte.com

Goal
As part of Team NFTE Chicago, I am focused on supporting the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE Chicago) and their entrepreneurship education programs. NFTE Chicago's mission is provide programs which inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, recognize business opportunities and plan for successful futures. NFTE’s philosophy is simple: prevent young people from dropping out of high school by connecting them with something THEY care about - making their own money. Entrepreneurship education gives students a reason to be excited about the core subjects, reading, writing and math, and view mastery of these areas as a key to finishing high school and even attending college. NFTE helps students see possibilities for their lives that they didn’t even know existed. Today, the global conversation has shifted to the innovative, the imaginative, and the entrepreneurial, and the importance of entrepreneurship education is being identified as a way to revive and sustain our economy. Entrepreneurs are changing the landscape of the world and NFTE Chicago is sowing the seeds of this change in Chicago’s young people. Please support me as I race to support NFTE Chicago at the 2011 Bank of America Chicago Marathon!
