ABOUT ENACTUS LAMBTON
Enactus Lambton seeks to create solutions to economic, social and environmental issues through outreach projects and business ventures in order to bring about sustainable change in communities across the country and around the world.
Enactus Lambton is part of an international non-profit organization that brings together student leaders to create a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business.
Enactus operates in 36 countries with the involvement of 1700+ college and university campuses. Students form teams on their campuses and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
Annual national competitions provide a forum for these teams to present the results of their projects, and to be evaluated by business leaders. By contributing their talents to projects that better the lives of people worldwide, Enactus participants demonstrate that individuals with a knowledge and passion for business can be a powerful force for change.
1. Needs assessment – determining exactly what IS needed and wanted in order to improve financial security and improve quality of life. During the needs assessment, Enactus Lambton listens to a community's goals and objectives and peoples hopes and dreams.
2. Education and training – narrowing down how ’ goals could be achieved. The Enactus Lambton team works with subject matter experts to determine how to produce the best results. We then begin to teach participants on the topic.
3. Growth and development – to increase the number of individuals learning the programs, Enactus Lambton uses the train the trainer method, transferring knowledge and teaching techniques to select people who could then train future participants.
4. Ensuring long-term success – putting a plan in place to make the project sustainable without Enactus Lambton’s direct involvement or oversight. This includes the development of a management team for when Enactus is not there.
