Enactus is an international organization that brings together students, academic and business leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to enable progress around the world. Guided by faculty advisors and business experts, participating students form teams on their campuses to create and implement community projects that empower people to improve their quality of life and standard of living. The experience not only transforms lives, it helps students develop the kind of talent and perspective that are essential to becoming effective, values-driven leaders.

Here are some of the rewarding experiences that the Kansas City Kansas Community College Enactus group has participated in

  • Taught high school students how to invest wisely in the stock market.

VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Program

The VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program at Kansas City Kansas Community College teaches students how to prepare individual income tax returns so that they can subsequently prepare individual tax returns for low-income taxpayers in the community.  This idea of "service learning" benefits the students and the community.

The KCKCC VITA site is made up of students who enroll in the class for credit (offered in spring semesters) as well as other volunteers from the community.  Last year, we had about 40 volunteers (about half of which were students enrolled in the class), and we prepared over 800 tax returns.  This saved the local community thousands of dollars in fees they would have to pay if they were going to a paid tax-preparer for the same service.

For information on the class and/or service, please contact Chad Marmon at
