2022 PROJECTS

CONNECTING US.
UNITING COMMUNITIES.

Real change happens in small steps. We believe
in the power of local, community-driven initiatives.

Project CU4C establishes a network of CU Clubs within high schools, empowering students in grades 9-12 to identify pressing needs in their communities. Together, we then build impact plans to address the issues through local and action-based initiatives.  By providing a common platform to share and tell their stories, CU4C connects students and guides them to unite their communities through volunteer action.

Our three pillars to assist students are:

  1. Creating and connecting hubs in each community.

  2. Developing curriculum and resources to guide social impact projects.

  3. Inspire youth through skills development, success sharing, incentives and collaborative events.

 

Our mission is to get students OUT into the community through initiatives, and the community IN to the schools to interact with students through networking and skills-development activities. Along the way, students gain necessary volunteer hours towards their high school diploma, and connect their experiences to future careers, higher education, and long-term involvement in social entrepreneurship.

IMPROVING THE RECYCLING PROCESS BY
REDUCING POST-CONSUMER WASTE.

rCycle uses an innovative, eco-conscious app to reduce

post-consumer waste by improving the recycling process.

Together with our technology partner, the app has been

developedto educate and reward users for recycling efforts and

promote sustainable shopping decisions. rCycle app users build points, known as rCoins, for recycling properly which can then be used to purchase eco-friendly and sustainably sourced products on campus and within the community. rCycle is programmed to the location of the user and their community recycling guidelines.

Currently, the rCycle prototype is being developed in Oshawa at our own Durham College AI Hub. Enactus DC will be piloting the first site, in partnership with our technology software partner. Enactus DC will also be launching an extensive rCycle user campaign on our campus, with plans to increase these impacts to the community and beyond.

Project True Grit expands the minds of at risk youth to help them discover their full potential through a interactive wellness program. By using the seven pillars of wellness, project True Grit will empower these youth with valuable skills and knowledge around, mental, social, and intellectual wellness.

There is a financial literacy gap, that needs to be filled by the combined efforts of volunteers and social service agencies, willing to empower people within the Durham region to make sure these lost funds reach the families they were designed to support and bridge the financial literacy gap.
