What makes a young person decide not to go to college and choose to break into the professional world instead? What does it take to be successful as a startup employee while you're still a teenager? What's involved in building a personal brand around your passions? Praxis is a 12-month startup apprenticeship program for young people ready to launch their careers. Program participants are a talented and interesting bunch -- they each have unique experiences and interests, and unique reasons for taking an unconventional path. Many of them don't have college degrees, and all of them are building exciting careers, either at startups or in their own ventures. In Talkin' 'Bout Praxis, we do just what the name suggests -- talk about Praxis, and, more importantly, the interesting people who make up our community. In this podcast, Education Director T.K. Coleman and Bootcamp Advisor Hannah Frankman invite Praxis participants to share their stories -- what they did before Praxis, their experience in the program, and what comes after.
