What if one day could change a teenager’s life forever? What if in one day teens could learn skills – teamwork, leadership, ethics – that will help them influence their peers and change their communities? What if they had an opportunity to see their career potential? What if it was fun and rewarding too?

The Nehemiah Project is launching the Biblical Apprentice, a youth entrepreneurship program, in an effort to provide this life-changing, positive and fun program to local teens. The program is designed for students, ages 11 -18, to learn the value of teamwork, biblical ethics and all aspects of doing business God’s way.

The Biblical Apprentice features instruction that centers on Biblical Entrepreneurship and shows students the process of taking an idea from conception to developing it into a profit-making kingdom business through teamwork.  The students engage in business games that demonstrate the value of the free market and the positive impact of trade in society, learn Biblical application for their day-to-day lives regarding God’s commands for earning money, stewardship, leadership and healthy competition and receive coaching and mentoring by executives and owners of local kingdom businesses.

Oh and did we mention the Mini Business Plan Competition where teams can win cash prizes?

* 1st Prize $500     * 2nd Prize $250     * 3rd Prize $125

Statistics show that today’s youth have a strong desire to pursue entrepreneurship and studies show that youth who participate in entrepreneurship programs do better academically, have stronger interpersonal skills and relationships and are more prepared to find employment and pursue career opportunities in a highly-competitive job market.
