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.
Through our projects we have inspired, empowered, and educated individuals across the entire Okanagan valley.
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.
