The Issachar Center for Urban Leadership equips young adults from and for low-income urban communities for transformative servant leadership.
1220 E. 24th Ave. | Denver, CO 80205
All Issachar students attend college (most full-time). We provide tutoring, coaching, and a scholarship for up to four years, helping students develop the life and study skills necessary for graduation and beyond.
All apprentices live for two years in a 6-unit residential facility, learning to manage household responsibilities, pay rent, and live with others.
Leading from Below
Apprentices study public leadership, community engagement, and urban issues during dinner and training one night each week. Guests and partners regularly join us.
Leading from Within
Apprentices go through a spiritual formation program during an extended morning gathering once a week.
Community &Vocational Service
All apprentices continue to apply their learning and explore their calling while serving with local organizations for six to eight hours a week. In total, student responsibilities require about 60 hours a week. Students are given a stipend for rent and living expenses so that they can focus on Issachar Program requirements.
