We are giving away one FULL TUITION ($11,000 value) scholarship to a homeschool student. That means that not only will you get free tuition, you’ll also make at minimum $14,400 during your apprenticeship!
What is Praxis?
Praxis is a 12-month paid startup apprenticeship program for young people (we love homeschoolers!) who want to start their career NOW. No debt, no degrees, no boring classes.
What do you get by joining Praxis?
All Praxis participants complete a 6-month bootcamp before starting their apprenticeship.
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. Finally, you’ll work weekly with professional advisors to learn the skills you need to succeed at your apprenticeship.
After completed the bootcamp, you’ll begin a 6-month paid apprenticeship at a startup. You’ll apprentice full time at a successful startup and make $15 per hour. You’ll shadow founders and CEOs, complete self-directed projects, and develop skills and experiences that you can take anywhere.
Our graduates currently have a 96% employment rate and an average income of over $50,000 per year.
Why are we offering this?
Our goal at Praxis is simple: we want to take the top 1% of young professionals and help them build amazing careers by sidestepping credentials, boring internships, and other outdated hoops that young people today are told they “have” to jump through.
Homeschoolers are disproportionately part of this demographic. They’re bright, self starting, highly coachable, high character, and they’re often primed to begin their careers at a much earlier age than they think is possible.
And our results with homeschoolers prove it.
Here are a few notes from some of our homeschooled participants:
“On top of all the knowledge and skills I’ve gained, I also have an amazing career as Sales Manager at a tech startup. I truly feel like I’m growing and learning every day. Best feeling ever. Thanks, Praxis!!” – Diana Zitting, Platform Marketing
“The most exciting project I’ve worked on during my apprenticeship has been the promotion I made for our big launch of Autopilot Insights, a powerhouse of conversion data and analytics for Autopilot customer journeys.” – Ryan Matlock, Autopilot
“A year ago today I was accepted into Praxis. And it has hands down been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.” – Caitlyn Scheel, Practice Paradox
“Praxis has been a career and life accelerator. By the time my peers will graduate college, I’ll have over 3 years of experience in a field I previously thought I needed a degree in.” – Lydia Hodgson, GoRealty
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.
The DEADLINE TO APPLY is Sunday, December 31st.
You will find out if you’ve been accepted for the scholarship by January 15th, 2018. And don’t worry, if you aren’t accepted for the scholarship, your application is still valid for the program.
