Post-secondary education is often regarded as the most enriching years of your life that prepare you for your career. Getting involved in student organizations is not only a great way to bolster your resume, but also make lifelong friends and set you apart from your competition when applying for jobs.

Experiential learning is a great way to get hands-on experience and apply what you’re learning in the classroom in a real-world context.

So, is there a place to combine the two to get the best of both worlds? Introducing Enactus.
