AME exists to help families in the practical application of Apprenticeship, Mentorship, and Entrepreneurship as they establish, integrate, and operate their businesses to the glory of God. Acts of compassion and care toward other people are enhanced by our willingness and ability to manage and direct the fruits of our labor (time, talents, and money) provided by God to meet their needs. This is very much a part of loving our neighbor as ourselves.
Christian Home Educators of Colorado (CHEC) founded the AME Program to promote and facilitate apprenticeship, mentorship, and entrepreneurship opportunities to families and individuals to successfully develop and operate business enterprises and distribute resources to the glory of God.
What Does This Look Like?
Let’s say an individual or family is serious about starting their own business or already owns a business and would like to be a part of a community of like-minded people who are doing the same — learning best practices among other crucial strategies for growing and maintaining a successful business.
For current business owners, we offer connection to community, classes, resources, and materials to help them make their enterprises more productive.
For those interested in starting their own enterprise we offer practical education and apprenticeship/mentorship to guide them along the way. Since the best education comes in the form of actual experience we encourage and facilitate the tried and true method of training by a godly, experienced mentor for anyone embarking on the path towards business ownership.
In addition to offering workshops, classes, and other resources, AME Capital Partners will buy/start and incubate small businesses in order to train individuals and families in growing and operating their own business. When they have demonstrated their ability to successfully operate, and a strong desire to own the business, it will be sold to them on favorable terms, which will provide a reasonable return to the AME program and an excellent opportunity for their future success. Sale proceeds will be reinvested into other businesses to continue the process. Mentorship for the new business owner will be ongoing as needed.
