Seeing possibilities. Taking action. Enabling progress.

Spread across the four campuses of Okanagan College in Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton, and Salmon Arm, Enactus Okanagan College is a non-profit student run organization that develops and implements projects in our communities that improve the quality of life and standard of living across the region!

En • Act • Us

  • entrepreneurial – having perspective to see an opportunity and the talent to create value from the opportunity;
  • action – the willingness to do something and the commitment to see it through even when the outcome is not guaranteed;
  • us – a group of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole.

 Seeing Possibilities

Our area faces many challenges, and each community in the region has its own unique needs - but where others see problems, we see opportunities! Our team is committed to addressing the needs of our communities by partnering with local organizations to implement projects that really make a difference.

Taking Action

We run high-impact projects that address economic, social, and environmental issues. We have developed entrepreneurial programs that contribute to the development of our small business economies. We have provided support and immediate aid to our local food banks by running projects designed to collect much-needed donations and funds. We have helped raise awareness for local agriculture and helped support our farmers by creating an off-season market. We have worked with children, single mothers, and individuals at risk in our communities to show them the transformative power of positive change.

Through our projects we have inspired, empowered, and educated individuals across the entire Okanagan valley.

Enabling Progress

Our approach is based on a common set of values that inform our perspective and drive our work. We want to drive change in our communities, not to give a hand out to those in need, but to work side by side with them to create opportunity. Through our projects Enactus Okanagan College enables progress to transform lives and communities across the valley.

Taking part in Enactus Okanagan College provides students with real world, hands-on experience and that helps develop leadership skills and gives students an advantage in making connections during your education and post graduation. Enactus students are often recruited by top companies locally, nationally, and internationally.
