Entrepreneurial Education: Helping Students Become Change Makers

In today's rapidly changing world, students are yearning for opportunities to solve big challenges and make a meaningful impact on society. There is a paradigm shift happening in education—from in-school entrepreneurial efforts to real-world ventures that include adult mentors and apprenticing situations where businesses are developed either jointly with adults and/or by students pursuing their individual passions. More students are embracing entrepreneurship as a mindset rather than just an act of starting a business. This shift opens doors to new opportunities and enables students to gain valuable durable skills through entrepreneurial education. During this session, we’ll discuss strategies and approaches to empowering students to become proactive change-makers who make a positive impact on society. We will also hear from Black and Latinx NFTE alumni who used entrepreneurship as a pathway for personal reinvention and career success.
