This program gets results. Money is wisely invested into teaching at-risk students how to start and operate a business. It provides them with self-esteem and makes them productive members of society. Over the past 25 years it has produced a very large number of companies who employ significant numbers of staff. This type of initiative is far superior to any Government initiative to fight poverty and/or drive jobs. The overhead is reasonable, particularly given that they need to operate in large cities where their constituents live.

This organization spends too much on salaries and management in the New York City office and not enough on their programs (for teachers and students) around the country. I've donated for years but will not do so in the future until there are fewer high paid employees, and more going to the schools in low-income communities.

I loved my experience at the NFTE Green Business and Technology BizCamp this summer in San Francisco with NFTE Bay Area! The friends I made, the business plan I wrote, the professional contacts I made...none of it would have been possible without the inspiration from the dedicated NFTE staff. My experience here opened my eyes to a career in the non-profit sector. Thanks so much, NFTE!
