About the FTE

The mission of the Foundation for Teaching Economics (FTE) is to introduce young individuals, selected for their leadership potential, to an economic way of thinking about national and international issues and to promote excellence in economic education by helping economics teachers become more effective educators.

The FTE is dedicated to emphasizing the important role of individuals as productive, responsible citizens in free societies. Our student training programs provide a small classroom setting where serious discussion can take place that enables participants to better understand the free market system. The FTE is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt foundation.
