Iapetus is a proud supporter of Atlas Scholars, a non-profit started by CEO Craig Taylor in 2011 to support high-potential and motivated high school students with mentorship, scholarship and exposure to professional industry in a performance-based environment.
Each year in the Houston headquarters, a group of high school students actively participate in an energy/finance focused professional development program consisting of team projects, industry-leading guest speakers, field trips, mentorship, college preparation, and scholarships.
Recruitment is focused on top performing students from the Houston Independent School District (HISD). Applicants endure a highly competitive selection process consisting of essays, teacher recommendations, and interviews.
Once accepted, students are a part of a dynamic three-year program consisting of three, one-month summer sessions and year-round mentoring. The program connects students with industry leaders and exposes them to high-pressure, performance-based environments.
Students go on to become leaders at their high schools and universities.
Iapetus also gives back to Make Our Schools Safe, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting students and teachers at school. Its mission is to empower students and staff to help create and maintain a culture of safety and vigilance in a secure school environment.
