Who we are
Enactus is the UK’s leading youth social action and youth enterprise education charity supporting over 3,000 young entrepreneurial spirits every year.
Our mission in the UK is to be recognised as a leader in developing a national network of socially-minded young leaders of the future who transform communities and society through real life social action and environmentally responsible enterprise.
What we do:
We make the connection between character education and the world of work, enabling young people to develop the knowledge and attitudes they need to succeed, building on the experience of youth social action, enterprise and entrepreneurship. We work with educational professional, business leaders, mentors, specialists and Alumni who combine to create a unique co-curricular enterprising environment.
What Enactus students do:
With the support of the programme and all the 600+ mentors and advisors, Enactus students deliver support to over 7,500 beneficiaries each year through the delivery of over 200 socio-economic and environmental projects.
What we offer:
Our aim is to support as many young people in the UK to gain the employability and personal character benefits of youth social action/enterprise up to the age of 25 as possible from a range of backgrounds. We offer our Secondary Schools programme (from 2018) through to our University Programme (across 59 universities in the UK).
Since we were established, over 20,000 young people have taken part in Enactus Enterprise programmes in the UK. We take evaluation very seriously and that’s why we measure the impact of everything we do.
