Interested in getting involved? You probably have some questions, and we have answers.
Enactus is a student-led program that aims to accomplish the United Nation’s 17 Sustainability Goals. To do this, we create and implement community projects and business ventures that address various needs in our communities. We are passionate about advancing the environmental, social, and economic well-being of our world.
Enactus NAIT operates under the Mawji Centre for New Venture and Student Entrepreneurship here at NAIT, and we are lucky to be part of a polytechnic institution where we can establish partnerships with industry and alumni. This year, our team is running projects related to financial literacy, obtaining higher education, building meaningful relations, and others, but we are always open to new ideas and would invite you to get involved in an area that you are passionate about.
The amount of time you contribute to the team is entirely up to you. Some of our members can only do an hour or two per week, while others contribute twenty hours a week. The more responsibility you would like to have, the more hours you would be expected to contribute. All that we require is that you follow through with your commitment.
Yes! Enactus NAIT is made up of students from various programs, and even though we are focused on social entrepreneurship initiatives, this does not mean that we are only about business. People with skills in technology, trades, and sciences make our projects succeed!
All members are expected to attend general meetings in addition to being on a project team, and are encouraged to attend special events hosted by Enactus NAIT. General meetings occur biweekly, whereas project meeting times vary depending on the project team. Specific activities also vary based on the project team in question, but could include R&D, administration, leadership, or directly working with individuals. If there is a specific area or project you are interested in and would like to learn more, feel free to ask!
There are no previous skills or experience necessary, just a willingness to learn! Many of our members have different experiences, and so we aim to provide you with the skills you need before you take on a certain role or task. All of us are students, and we continue to learn and grow everyday – we only ask that you are willing to do the same!
