Enactus is an international non-profit organization that works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize university students to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders. Participating students form teams on their university campuses and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to present the results of their projects, and to be evaluated by business leaders serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the prestigious Enactus World Cup. In addition to the community aspect of the program, Enactus's leadership and career initiatives create meaningful opportunities for learning and exchange among the participants as well as the placement of students and alumni with companies in search of emerging talent.
Service projects this year include working with:
The 2014-2015 Malone Enactus has applied for and received three grants this year. We have received $1,500 from Walmart for Women's Empowerment, $1,500 from Sam's Club to help a small business, and $1,500 from Coca-Cola Foundation to help a woman-owned niche business. The Walmart Women's Empowerment Grant has enabled our team to design and present five presentations, at Turnaround Community Outreach and OhioMeansJobs, to help women enter the workforce or change careers. Next, the Sam's Club grant money is being used to help Cindy Petitti, owner/operator of Anthony Petitti Garden Center, thrive in the Stark county community. Finally, the Coca-Cola Uncap the Possibilities grant is allowing us to help a local artist, Vicki Boatright of Bztat Studios showcase her talents in various ways.
Malone's Enactus team has a strong history of successfully competing at the Enactus National Exposition. We are returning to the 2015 national stage as 2014 Opening Round Finalists. We are in the process of putting together our 2015 presentation team so please check back in March of 2015 to see who will be representing the team at nationals!
