Residency Program Application:

Thank you for your interest in the Atlas Residency Program. We offer one internship each year, beginning in May and ending in August, with a maximum of six interns per class. By offering an internship program, we hope to encourage and influence future entrepreneurs in their role in building meaningful, God-honoring companies and organizations. Under supervision, interns will gain knowledge in the areas of entrepreneurship, marketing, finance, leadership, and organizational management.

Program Details:

Description of Program Intent: The Atlas Residency Program seeks to train Christian men (20 to 30-year-olds) in business and entrepreneurship, and inspire them to a life of Christian ministry in their work lives. Through intense study, research, and hands-on experience, we hope to push young men to create/purchase businesses, and in doing so, change their lives, their families’ lives, and their communities. They will accomplish this goal by providing fulfilling jobs to their employees, opportunities in their communities, and resources to their churches.
