Enactus is a worldwide programme run by university students who strive to make this world a better through entrepreneurial action. We work with the those with needs in our local communites and at times abroad, and empower them through our projects in an economically, enviornmentally, and socially sustainable way.
At Enactus, we believe that if students work together and unleash their full potential, they can certainly change the world. That's why we go with the motto 'if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day but if you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime'. Our volunteer programmes and projects revolve around students transforming the lives of others by transfering their skills and knowledge to help others, all of which contribute to changing their lives in the longer run.

At Enactus, we run various projects that are making a difference in the lives of others every single day. These projects are designed and managed by students just like you from the University of Hertfordshire and are changing the lives of people from Hatfield to beyond. Some of our projects include:
Glasscycle: A project that upcycles used glass bottles from the university campus and converts them into candles, drinking glasses and vases.
Motiv-8: The Motiv8 Project is a mentoring programme delivered by trained University students. It is a five-week interactive programme aiming to increase confidence, self-esteem and motivation of young students aged 14-16 as well as their social skills. It is also dedicated to help young people identify their passion and how they can achieve this despite barriers or obstacles that life brings towards them. We visit schools and provide one hour long sessions a week, exploring different themes with fun activities and discussions. We focus on themes such as navigating around one’s strengths and weaknesses, how to be more open minded and what it means to value oneself. Motiv8’s vision believes in supporting young people to reach their potential, to express themselves more and bring the best out of them!
Plus, the best part about Enactus is that you can start up your own volunteer project or social enterprise as well! Our dedicated team of experts will provide you guidance on how to go about with it and soon you'll be on the road to success.
