Apprenticeships kick-start a 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, apprentices will both collaborate in and spearhead ministry wide projects.

It is a great opportunity to build strong community with like-minded people who are in the same season of life that you are in.

Apprenticeship opportunities 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 and will gain the knowledge and tools they need to serve effectively wherever they are assigned.

The apprenticeship program is a fast-paced adventure that will set you on a journey of self-awareness and leadership development that will empower you to serve the Lord.
