    God Blessings!

    Both of the sentences are correct.
    The first one is active and the second one is passive.
    In the first sentence, the subject is specified (you enlist).
    In the second sentence, the subject is not specified.

    Both sentences are grammatical. It's the verb enlist that's used incorrectly.

    True, enlist is usually a signing up in the military, a serious commitment.

    Yes, use "enroll" instead. I'm sure there are other options, but that one will work.
