We are excited to announce a new pilot program from Praxis that will commence in March 2018!
What is the Praxis Internship Program?
The Praxis Internship Program is a part time professional accelerator for students and aspiring entrepreneurs who want real world business experience and high quality career coaching from leading professionals.
If you’re excited by the full program but are not ready to make the time or lifestyle commitment, the Praxis Internship Program allows you to experience Praxis while still having plenty of time and freedom to focus on your side hustle, sports, or your school commitments.
You’ll leave the program with the beginnings of a solid professional portfolio, an understanding of the 21st century job landscape, and the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to make your next big career move.
What do you get by joining Praxis?
Three Month Professional Bootcamp
Participants in the Praxis Internship Program complete a 3-month bootcamp before beginning the internship at one of our business partners.
You’ll learn how to build a professional brand, develop a portfolio that showcases your talents to the world, and become a content creation machine.
You’ll also complete professional writing workshops, professional communication modules, and mock job interviews to help position you as a hireable young professional.
Three Month Paid Internship & Professional Coaching
After completing the bootcamp, you’ll begin a 3-month internship at one of the startups in the Praxis business partner network in Atlanta, Austin, or San Francisco. This paid internship is 20 hours a week, working with and learning from some of the best high-growth companies in the country.
In addition to the internship, all participants will partake in weekly workshops, group discussions, coaching sessions, and fireside chats featuring members of the Praxis staff, Praxis alumnus, leaders from our network of business partners, and entrepreneurs and thought leaders from around the world.
Here’s what graduates of the full program say:
How much does it all cost?
Full tuition for this program is $5,500 and payment plans are available upon request at acceptance. All participants will make $2,400 during their paid internship.
Where is it located?
Praxis is currently offering this program in Austin, TX, Atlanta, GA and San Francisco, CA. Education materials and workshops will be completed remotely online with fellow participants in your cohort and Praxis advisors.
When does it take place?
This 6-month program runs March-August, 2018.
March, April, and May consist of the professional bootcamp, which can be completed online from any location and will take a ~20 hour a week commitment. June, July, and August are on-site at a business partner, interning 20 hours a week, with an additional ~20 hours a week of Praxis programming.
Interested in applying? A few things first:
This is a HARD program. It will be unlike anything you’ve ever done before.
The good thing is you won’t be doing it alone. You’ll have a network of professional advisors, Praxis staff, and current Praxis participants and graduates who will help you navigate the unique challenges posed by the program.
If that excites you rather than scares you, the program could be a good fit for you.
We are capping the number of participants in this pilot program, so the sooner you apply, the better!
The DEADLINE TO APPLY is February 15th, 2018.
