Enactus Team Preps for Nationals: Final Rehearsal March 25th
The Enactus team at CityU is in the midst of prepping for the United States National Exposition 2014, where they’ll compete with other groups from around the country. Active since 2004, the group’s mission is to develop tomorrow’s leaders to create a sustainable world through the positive power of business.
The team will be having their final rehearsal presentation on March 25th at 4:00 p.m. in the NW Conference Room on City University of Seattle’s main campus. They’d love it if you were able to come and provide feedback!
What is Enactus?
The Enactus team at CityU is one of 518 active teams in the United States, and they work together to use the power of entrepreneurial action to enable human progress. CityU students are applying business concepts learned in their classes to develop projects that they hope will lead to a better, more sustainable world. Some of the projects they’re working on include:
- Spark from the Dark: A project that focused on vision impaired awareness
- Ignite the Seed: A project that taught low-income families to grow produce and build gardens
- Brighten Health: A project that included partnering with Washington Health Foundation to motivate people with diabetics to maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Light Up Jobs: A project that developed a training program and start-up business to employ homeless and veterans
The CityU Enactus team has a history of success at the tournament, placing second nationally the last two years, and CityU is excited to continue to support the group’s mission and values. The video below gives a quick rundown of the competition for anyone interested (look for CityU at 1:22!):
