Here’s an opportunity that is exclusive to Praxis participants who apply to start the program in early 2016.
Praxis is looking for an entrepreneurial young person to place at our business partner, ADS Security, in their marketing department. The participant will have the opportunity to shadow the CEO, learn from marketing experts in their department, and learn the ins and outs of successful marketing operations within a successful, growing company.
This is one of our best opportunities. Praxis graduate Imani Watson worked at ADS Security during her business placement and received a full time job offer from Amcrest Technologies upon graduation.
WHAT IS ADS SECURITY
ADS Security provides commercial and residential security, fire, wellness, and identity protection systems to individuals and communities across the southeastern United States, with a presence from Kentucky through Florida. ADS technicians install home and commercial security systems while experts monitor and respond to alarms. Team members at the Nashville, TN office run the operations of the company, develop new technology, do marketing and bookkeeping, and monitor a central command post.

PRAXIS EDUCATION EXPERIENCE
The Praxis Education Experience is built around outcomes, not just activities. Participants create tangible results through projects and tailored learning plans. The program delves into everything from digital skills and professional proficiencies to core concepts in philosophy, history, economics, technology, and business. While the business experience takes place onsite, the education component is done remotely through an online portal and interactive communication.
The participant is in control of this experience. With the assistance and coaching of Praxis advisors, participants create a professional development course to accelerate their growth. Between access to a world-class curriculum library, connections with entrepreneurs and intellectuals, and all the resources of the Praxis network, the education experience can’t be beat by sitting in a classroom.
