Ever since we started Praxis in 2013, our mission has been to help young adults who want to break the mold discover and do what makes them come alive without the cost and hassle of college.

We believe the most fulfilling careers are discovered and forged through experience, not from sitting in classrooms or collecting credentials. It takes an exemplary work ethic, a strong desire to learn independently, and personal responsibility to bet on yourself, rather than traditional institutions like college.

We help our apprentices do this through our one-year apprenticeship program that combines a 6-month professional bootcamp with a full-time paid job at a high-growth startup or independent small business. Our grads launch promising careers in one year while their college peers, on average, take nearly 6 years just to graduate.

Over the past 19 months I’ve witnessed colleges fail to support and serve their students through continued increased tuition costs and a series of Covid-19 policies that have severely limited a student’s ability to thrive intellectually and socially while doing little to prepare them to build a career they love.

It’s important that ambitious, hard-working young people have more educational and professional development options as they transition into the real world given the failing state of colleges across the country today.

As the leader of Praxis I strive every day to make sure we are in the best position possible to help each one of our apprentices develop the mindsets, habits, skills, and network necessary to discover and do what makes them come alive – on their own terms. Our mission is more vital than ever given the changing landscape of higher education and the professional world.

It is with these considerations in mind that we have decided to share our Covid-19 policy and announce a new scholarship opportunity below.
