Enactus lands $1500 partnership grant
The student entrepreneurship organization, Enactus, is off to a great start this year. The club hosted a successful kick-off party early in the semester. Since officially re-launching the organization in 2014, they’ve grown to 20 members and continue to generate support.
Now that the club is official again, they’re excited to be revitalizing a 2013 initiative, Supplying Underprivileged Individuals Tools for Success (SUITS), with a huge advantage. The Georgia Southern Enactus club was awarded a $1500 grant by The Walmart Women’s Economic Empowerment Project. The plan is to partner with Career Services on campus to host mock interviews and personal enrichment workshops. They will also partner with local non-profits to supply disadvantaged women with professional attire for job interviews.
Enactus is working hard on a couple of other projects for the regional competition which will take place in the spring. While we are excited and proud for their recent accomplishments, we also look forward to BIGger things to come from this outstanding group of students.
