Mission

“To create and successfully execute projects that empower people with the knowledge needed to make the best decisions regarding their personal lives, communities, businesses and our planet.”

Ongoing projects

Enactus’s focus this year is healthy eating. According to the Baltimore City Health Department, “In Baltimore City, one in three high school students is either obese or overweight. One in four high school students drinks one or more regular sodas every day, while less than half eat one or more servings of vegetables a day. Less than half of middle school students eat breakfast on a daily basis.” Enactus wants to help change this.

The student members of ENACTUS have been working hard to form partnerships with local schools in Baltimore City. Their goal is to educate young children, their families, and the community about options available to make healthier choices. Enactus is doing this through parent, child, and teacher education.

Currently, Enactus has

  • Partnered with Robert W. Coleman Elementary School. Enactus will provide 2 cooking demonstrations and healthy snacks twice a month to elementary students. Enactus students will also provide cooking demonstrations and classes to parents, teachers, and the community.
  • Partnered with UMB CURE program to provide healthy cooking demonstrations to high school students from across Baltimore City. Enactus will also be providing healthy cooking classes to the students and their families.
  • Partnered with Roots and Branches Elementary School. Enactus will be providing team building to teachers based around healthy choices and nutrition. Enactus students will also be providing some community dinners which will include cooking demos and educational activities for children.
