This month, five Flagler College students attended the Enactus Fall Training Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The event was sponsored by Walmart and Sam’s Club and hosted by the Marriott Alpharetta. The conference was revamped this year to include group working sessions and content sessions. The topics for content sessions ranged from how to conduct a comprehensive needs assessments to preparing for competition. The students that attended discovered new ways to fundraise for projects and recruit new team members.
After lunch was provided, Enactus students had the opportunity to attend a career fair where they had the chance to network with recruiters from Enactus partner companies. The day ended with a panel of Enactus alumni giving advice to students on how they can better prepare for their future careers.
Jose Franky is a first year student at Flagler College that attended the conference and he said, “The Fall Training Conference shed light on the extensive impact Enactus has on not only the individual, but also his or her surrounding community.”
