Dear Friends of Youth Entrepreneurship America!

I am so proud to share with you that Entrepreneurship: Owing Your Future, the 11th edition of NFTE’s curriculum, was recently chosen by the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) as the best math curriculum for high school students!

 The Distinguished Achievement Award is given to handful of curricula each year that exemplify the strict academic standards of the AEP. This is the second award that NFTE’s curriculum has won – our  ninth edition was chosen to receive the Golden Lamp Award by the AEP in 2003. You can read more about the award on our website.

The NFTE curriculum focuses on critical basic business skills that reinforce the fundamentals of mathematics, including how to calculate the economics of one unit, return on investment, the creation of income statements and balance sheets, and how to manage cash flow. These concepts are rounded out with essential business concepts such as opportunity recognition, creating a marketing plan, negotiation, time management and goal setting.

We are now gearing up for NFTE University Teacher Training the last week of July in collaboration with George Washington University’s Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence.  Over 16 new DC,MD & VA teachers will certified and launching programs this Fall.  For more details on the training contact

Have a safe, happy and healthy summer!

Warm Regards,

    That’s awesome! Congrats! Things are easier for students to understand when they have an opportunity to use those skills in everyday life. Showing students how math skills can help them build strong businesses is a no-brainer.

    Congrats again!
