Enactus at the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston traveled to Kansas City, MO to compete in a national exposition against 105 teams. The competition measured each chapters who advanced from their regional competitions whose impact using entrepreneurial action to create a better world based off of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The students gained exposure to multiple projects across the nation and brought back ideas to apply to their projects here in Houston.
One recent event that happened on campus was the Yates High School Mentorship Program, in which they hosted a banquet for 15 female seniors. They helped them with college preparedness and collected over $70,000 in scholarships and grants outside their FAFSA package to relieve their financial burdens for their first year of college. They want to thank all the mentors and the members who helped out to make this program possible as a Third Ward Initiative.
Projects such as this are what brings together a network of students, academic, and business leaders to accomplish goals like these. Enactus look forward to continue working with the Houston community and better the lives of the people they are helping.
