Enactus aims to support young people in the UK (up to the age of 25) to engage in youth social action and youth social enterprise.

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.

We have an established University programme which has been running since 2001 and now operates in 59 Universities across the UK, engaging up to 3000 students each year.  

In 2018 we are excited to be launching two further initiatives; ‘Enactus for Schools’ which will be working with students in Secondary education and ‘Enactus for Entrepreneurs’, providing support to individual looking to start their own enterprise. 

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.

We support entrepreneurs at each stage of their life, we believe it is important to start teaching enterprise education from school and continue to support our students through university and even after they have left

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).

Our Impact:

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.

ENACTUS FOR SCHOOLS

Our Enactus for Schools programme is an exciting new initiative which aims to support young people in secondary education. 

We work with partner organisations to deliver youth social action and entrepreneurial training that engages them in society and develops them into responsible and social conscious young leaders.

ENACTUS FOR UNIVERSITIES

Our Enactus UK University programme is part of a global network operating in 36 countries around the world. Throughout the UK, students across 59 Universities are implementing innovative solutions to societies most challenging problems.We provide a platform for teams of outstanding University students to create sustainable solutions to society's biggest challenges.

Our work transforms both the lives of the people they serve, and in turn, the lives of our students as they develop into more effective, value-driven leaders.

ENACTUS FOR ENTREPRENEURS

Our Enactus students move into a wide variety of careers and industries upon graduating from University, some of these choose to take the practical enterprise skills they have learned during their time with Enactus to develop their own enterprise.

Our ‘Enactus for Entrepreneurs’ platform will provide support to individuals looking to start their own venture, which includes mentorship, grant-funding and office space.
