Our program

 

iNVEST in leadership

iSSACHAR apprentices attend college (most full time). In an effort to help students develop the life and study skills necessary for graduation and beyond, we provide tutoring, coaching, and tuition assistance of up to $6,000 for up to four years.

 

iNTEGRATE faith and identity

Each apprentice participates in weekly spiritual formation training with the goal of better understanding self and what it means to follow Jesus. Activities include Bible and book studies, spiritual inventory assessments, prayer and solo experiences, among others.

 

iNTERSECT the issues of our time

Apprentices study public leadership, community engagement, and urban issues during a weekly family meal and training. Local guests and partners regularly join in.

 

iMMERSE ourselves in community

All apprentices live for two years in a six-unit residential facility, learning to manage household responsibilities, pay rent, and share life with others. Students receive a monthly $1,100 stipend to assist with living expenses so that they can focus on the program study and service requirements.

 

iMPACT the world

Throughout their time in the program, apprentices apply their learning and further explore their leadership calling by serving with local organizations six to eight hours a week. In total, student responsibilities require approximately 60 hours a week.
