What is SIFE?
Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) is a global non-profit organization active in more than 1,500 college and university campuses in 42 countries and territories around the world. In the United States, more than 700 colleges and universities are enrolled in SIFE.
Working together as a team and through the mentoring of faculty advisors, SIFE students apply their classroom experiences to develop and implement educational outreach programs that teach individuals in their communities the principles of market economics, entrepreneurship, personal financial success skills, environmental sustainability and business ethics.
The challenge to SIFE teams is not simply to inform, but also to empower, and get involved – to help their targeted audiences reach their full potential through a better understanding of the principles of free enterprise. Individually, SIFE teams improve the quality of life and standard of living for members of their communities, and themselves.
