Apply for the Apprentice Program

The apprentice program equips participants with the needed skills and experience to begin a fulfilling career within Samaritan’s Purse, all while offering a full-time salary and benefits. The goal of the program is to transition an apprentice to long-term employment as quickly as possible based on the requisite training needs of each position. Apprentices who complete their training will be resilient future leaders, equipped to serve with excellence in Jesus’ Name.

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”—Mark 16:15

International apprentice opportunities serve to train and equip professionals for future leadership within Samaritan’s Purse. Through presentations from top executives, simulations, and projects, apprentices will grow in the competencies that define a professional at Samaritan’s Purse. After training at our international headquarters, apprentices are placed in one of our international field offices for hands-on training.

Domestic apprentice opportunities kick-start an apprentice’s career through hands-on learning from an expert in their field. Apprentices will have the chance to quickly build their professional network while honing their technical skills. After training, domestic apprentices will both collaborate in and spearhead ministry wide projects.
