Enactus Leeds has been running since 2007 and we have run numerous projects working with such people as young mothers, NEET’s (those not in employment, education or training) and ex offenders. We aim to recruit dedicated and talented people who not only want to help themselves but others (and not forgetting have a good time as well).
