PODCAST: NFTE Dare to Dream Teachers Discuss Value of Entrepreneurial Education
In early May, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) hosted its 15th annual Dare to Dream Gala, which helps raise funds to provide entrepreneurship education to more than 900 youth from low-income communities in the metropolitan Washington, DC area, as well as train high school teachers to deliver practical business curriculum to students in their schools.
In addition, NFTE hands out a number of awards at the gala to outstanding student entrepreneurs who are clearly budding pivotal players in the business world. We were fortunate enough to spend time with two teachers whose student walked away with awards at the Dare to Dream gala.
Following is an exclusive podcast with Stephanie Harmony, marketing teacher at Annandale High School – whose student was a second place winner – and Erin Cribbs, the Business Education Department Chair at Croom Vocational HS. Erin had students who won first- and third-place awards.
Both Stephanie and Erin discuss why the right entrepreneurial educational programs are vital in creating the next generation of business leaders and much more.
