Our Team

We are Enactus Okanagan College

Our team is based in the Okanagan Valley in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Spread across the four campuses of Okanagan College in Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton, and Salmon Arm, Enactus Okanagan College is a non-profit student run organization that develops and implements projects in our communities that improve the quality of life and standard of living across the region!.

Our area faces many challenges, and each community in the region has its own unique needs – but where others see problems, we see opportunities! Our team is committed to addressing the needs of our communities by partnering with local organizations to implement projects that really make a difference.
We run high-impact projects that address economic, social, and environmental issues. We have developed entrepreneurial programs that contribute to the development of our small business economies. We have provided support and immediate aid to our local food banks by running projects designed to collect much needed donations and funds. We have helped raise awareness for local agriculture and helped support our farmers by creating an off-season market. We have worked with children, single mothers, and individuals at risk in our communities to show them the transformative power of positive change.
Our approach is based on a common set of values that inform our perspective and drive our work. We want to drive change in our communities, not to give a hand out to those in need, but to work side by side with them to create opportunity. Through our projects Enactus Okanagan College enables progress to transform lives and communities across the valley.

Our Purpose

Enactus is an international non-profit organization that brings together student, academic and business leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. Guided by academic advisers and business experts, the student leaders of Enactus create and implement community empowerment projects around the globe. The experience not only transforms lives, it helps students develop the kind of talent and perspective that are essential to leadership in an ever-more complicated and challenging world.

Our Commitment

Together we pledge to take action. Together we commit to apply our passions and talents and ideas to impact as many lives as we can. Not to hand out help to people in need, but to work side-by-side with them to create opportunity. So every person and community we touch is empowered to live up to their fullest potential.
