The Future of Enactus Laurier...

Shredded

Shredded is a project run by Enactus Laurier that is focused on textile waste and how to repurpose textiles into usable products. Through our partnership with The Salvation Army, we are able to repurpose large amounts of secondhand clothing that would otherwise end up in a landfill or create air pollution through an incineration process.

Coffee On Call

Coffee on Call is a developing Social Enterprise at Wilfrid Laurier University with the goal of providing university students with better access to coffee during unconventional business hours.

 

Potential candidates will operate a coffee cart on WLU campus during weekends, midterms season, exams season, and other special events in collaboration with campus clubs. Our coffee cart will be providing employment opportunities for individuals seeking a flexible working environment.

 

We are looking to work with individuals experiencing intellectual or developmental disabilities. Our coffee cart will not only provide employment, but it will also foster a unique learning environment where individuals can develop hard and soft skills while gaining valuable life experiences.
