What sort of projects do we do?
Well, our projects are mainly service-based, which focuses on solving and improving Houston businesses. Our Project Managers and students work on a semester or year-long project*. Every year, we have an opportunity to showcase the results of our projects at Regionals and National Exposition hosted by Enactus USA. By investing in our projects, you'd not only be assisting our students to become entrepreneurial leaders, but helping the Houston community as well.
*Along with general members, our projects are also led by students enrolled in GENB (General Business) 3302 at the University of Houston. GENB students' club fees are waived for ONLY that semester. Please let the Project Managers know if you are a GENB student or not.

Yates High School Mentorship Program
A Finalist in the Women's Empowerment Project Challenge,' Enactus has created a lasting partnership with Yates High School Enactus members to go to Yates High School and mentor top tier girls from the Junior and Senior classes in what has become one of our successful projects. The mentoring is centered around college readiness and transition. Enactus has seen great success with last semester having the graduating seniors a 100% college acceptance rate, and made over $20,000 in scholarships. Joining this project insures that you will be making a lasting impact on the lives of the girls at Yates. This year we have the opportunity to expand our project to the Sophomores alongside the Juniors and Seniors at the Yates High School.
One of the newest projects in the Enactus family, E2B is a partnership program between Enactus members and local Houston entrepreneurs. The goal of this project is to help small businesses improve through targeted development. You will be taking up the role of consultants in a sense. Being that the project is still in its beginning stages, joining E2B will allow you to help shape the future of the project and plan out the planning phase.
Orientation/Project Kickoff is on Tuesday, September 4, 2018!!
They will both take place at UC South - Heights Room at 5pm. See y'all there!
