Introduction to Entrepreneurship
The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship http://www.nfte.com(NFTE) engages disenchanted low-income students with the academic system by teaching them how to start a business in an area in which they are already interested. In traditional book-oriented curricula these students are at high risk of dropping out. This presentation will demonstrate alternative teaching methods which motivate entrepreneurship. The roles of volunteers in working with students will be discussed.
Joel Warren has been the Executive Director of the NFTE program in Fairchester (Fairfield and Westchester) since its inception a dozen years ago. Joel has worked with a variety of social service and arts organizations, having been a professional theater manager for two decades. He has also served as a university chaplain for another decade -- at Yale and Penn, and was on the staff of Riverside Church for 5 years. He is married to a psychotherapist, Diane Barth, and has a son who will be graduating from Yale at this time next year.
