The Ideation Team are the creative brains of Enactus which focuses on generating new project ideas and putting these project plans into action throughout the year. New projects can be an event, a community project, or a social enterprise! The ideation team works closely together to research a targeted issue, brainstorm possible solutions, test prototypes, modify based off the feedback from the tests, and develop a solution until it is ready to be implemented. The ultimate goal is to identify the needs of our community and to create a sustainable project or business that will satisfy these needs.

If you are passionate about entrepreneurship and believe in its power to enact positive change, then this is an ideal position for you! Successful candidates will develop valuable problem-solving skills to change lives, to change the world.

YouElevate

You-Elevate is an internship program that aims to empower high school youth by providing them a platform to gain entrepreneurial skills and jumpstart their professional careers. The You-Elevate Internship Program pairs students at exciting TDSB approved co-op placements with local Toronto startup companies. Through the program, students will learn what goes into sustaining a business along with transferable skills such as time management, communication skills, critical thinking, analytical skills, and many more. After just 6 months of launching our You-Elevate program last year, we have already partnered with 3 high schools, and developed customized programs for 5 students, with 13 official start-ups!

Along with the Internship Program, You-Elevate also runs Entrepreneurship Conferences for high school students.  We work closely with school boards and local organizations to deliver conferences which aim to fill the gaps in the current school curriculum regarding professional experience and practical, transferable skills such as time management, communication skills, critical thinking, and analytical skills. Last year, our first conference in partnership with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) had over 50 student attendees and our second conference with The Saturday Program was delivered to over 200 students!
