Enactus is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action. They provide a platform for teams of outstanding university students to create community development projects that put people’s own ingenuity and talents at the center of improving their livelihoods. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, students take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of their own success. At J.N.N our goal is to transform both the lives of the people we serve, and in turn, the lives of our students as they develop into more effective, values-driven leaders.
The Enactus year ends with the overall competition. This process provides teams with the opportunity to present their outreach projects to a panel of judges who evaluate those projects and determine which teams had the most impact improving the quality of life and standard of living for members of their community.
This competitive process creates a “best-practice” sharing environment and is aimed at fostering a healthy spirit of competition, which encourages and rewards excellence.
At J.N.N we believe that competition encourages creativity and rewards results. For Enactus, it means more lives impacted. An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to showcase the impact of their outreach efforts and to be evaluated by executives serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the prestigious Enactus World Cup to experience excellence in competition, collaboration and celebration.
