Who We Are

Cool people, doing great stuff, that makes a difference.

Enactus Durham College (EnactusDC) is a club of entrepreneurial student leaders who are looking to make a positive economic and social impact in society. Students and staff are able to apply their knowledge to cooperatively work together to create impactful self-sustaining projects. We also collaborate with established local services to work with and mentor throughout our journey. In EnactusDC’s first year of operation, the team has started two projects known as Learn Green, and Project YO (Youth Opportunities).

Oh, and we have fun while we’re at it. Work hard, play hard!

Message From a Co-president

For as long as I can remember I've wanted to be a creator, an inventor. It wasn't until I reached university though that I discovered entrepreneurship, a completely new way I could create and make impacts on people's lives. It was through my involvement with entrepreneurship that I got introduced to Enactus. For me, Enactus has opened up a whole new side of Entrepreneurship; social innovation. The idea of starting companies to address social challenges or simply integrating social initiatives closely into your company culture; ideas that I now apply to my own startups.

Message From a Co-president

Being able to help others has always been something that I love to do and what a better way than through social-entrepreneurship. Enactus played a huge role in my transition from university to college. It has given me an opportunity to meet new people around the school and throughout Canada, as well as stay connected with old friends.
