NFTE recognizes the Levy Institute as an outstanding academic partner

The National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship has bestowed its 2005 Enterprising Educator Award on the Kellogg School's Larry and Carol Levy Institute for Entrepreneurial Practice.

The award will be presented at NFTE's Annual Gala Dinner on April 26.

Each year, NFTE honors an outstanding academic partner in the field of entrepreneurship education. This year the distinction goes to the Levy Institute for its efforts to help launch NFTE's Chicago program office.

NFTE Chicago and the Levy Institute piloted a program where Kellogg students visit NFTE classrooms each week to mentor students on business plans. Initial feedback from all involved has been very positive and many of the Kellogg students have decided to continue mentoring students through this spring.

In addition to the mentoring program, NFTE Chicago is working with Kellogg to identify a faculty member to join the NFTE Chicago Advisory Board and become certified in the NFTE curriculum. Kellogg has generously provided the organization with facility space for events.

Since 1987, NFTE's mission has been to help young people from low-income communities build skills and unlock their entrepreneurial creativity. The organization, which has seven main offices in the United States, has worked with some 100,000 students over its history.
