ENACTUS (Entrepreneurship in Action) is an international non-profit organization that works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize university students to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders. Participating students form teams on their university campuses and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need (http://enactus.org/).
At JBU, our vision is: Changing lives around the world through education and service that equips people, builds communities, and inspires hearts. JBU students are currently setting up hydroponics gardening systems in Guatemala, helping provide a chance at quality education for youth in rural Nicaragua, teaching inmates in a nearby jail the skills to find and keep a job, assisting small business in Siloam Springs via workshops, and helping JBU’s campus become a zero-landfill school.
ENACTUS is both a club and a class offered for university credit. The current team is over 50 members from 10 different countries, studying 11 different majors. Is there a place for you? Yes. Reach out to ENACTUSjbu.org.
