WHO WE ARE | ENACTUS UBC
Enactus is a global, student-led organization dedicated to enacting positive social change through the lens of entrepreneurship. Core to the Enactus mission is a focus on youth empowerment, sustainability, and community-building Enactus UBC is home to a team of over 100 undergraduate students who collaborate to grow six unique projects that we have developed to serve our campus and community and drive the Enactus mission.
Enspire endeavours to spark creativity, inspire passion, and foster global awareness by introducing Grade 6-7 students to the world of social entrepreneurship. Over the span of six months, Enspire teaches business fundamentals through 6 interactive Digital Workshops, each culminating in monthly Learning Challenges that students can submit for the chance to win prizes.
In January 2020, we launched Enspire for the first time in three Grade 6-7 classrooms. When the in-person program was cut short due to Covid-19, the Enspire team worked to create a fully digital program model to suit remote learning. Last year, we succeeded in teaching over 200 students online! In light of the current circumstances, we've carefully redesigned the program to ensure that it is accessible and manageable in a hybrid classroom-to-digital learning environment, giving students the opportunity to work at their own pace while having fun.
Inspiring future world leaders through business education.
