what ambassadors get
Earn points between now and April 1 to become an Ambassador. Then for the next four months, you'll get to be part of the first Academy Ambassador cohort and receive professional development through September 2018.
Through this four month program you will gain professional development while connecting more deeply with inspiring peers across various years of Praxis Academy. Ask for career help, brainstorm an idea, or build relationships with like-minded individuals.
Get personal with the practitioners through live Q&A video calls with leading entrepreneurs and cultural thinkers. You'll also receive recorded content from our Accelerator programs -- getting an inside look at what Praxis Fellows experience.
Attend the first-ever Alumni Experience at Academy 2018 to build on the base of knowledge and deepen relationships in the community, featuring a lower time commitment and Alumni-exclusive pricing. Plus, as an Ambassador, you'll be able to register early and we'll cover half of your program fee.
HOW TO become an ambassador
Earn points by helping curate the next Academy Class and building your future peer community. Nominate outstanding candidates, register to host an event to share with others about Redemptive Entrepreneurship by March 1, and answer questions to help someone through the application process.
Once you earn 30 points you'll become an Ambassador. Keep earning points for bonus perks!
Step 1 // Fill out the Nomination form to share about outstanding candidates fo the Academy
Step 2 // We'll send you custom intro emails that you can easily forward Step 3 // Forward the email to your nominees (and CC the Academy inbox so we can give you credit)
There's no limit to the number of referrals you submit this way (the form allows up to 9 at once, and you can submit multiple forms!).
For every one of your nominees that apply to Academy 2018, you'll earn 5 points! Since we know it's more challenging for an applicant who has never heard of Praxis before (or from a school that doesn't offer scholarships), you get 5 bonus points if the applicant attended a non-partner school.
5 POINTS for Applications from an Affiliate or Partner School
+5 BONUS POINTS for Applications from a Non-Partner School
Host an Academy 2018 Preview Event on your campus / city to introduce your community to Redemptive Entrepreneurship. The syndicated video features a keynote from Academy 2017, two Praxis Fellow Pitches, and commentary from Jon. You can host any time between now and April 1, but you must register by March 1.
(And yes! You get points for applications and referrals that come from those event attendees. If you get 10 RSVP's, we'll cover dinner up to $100 for the group!)
This year's partner schools are Messiah, Abilene Christian, John Brown University, Seattle Pacific University, Wheaton College, Biola University, Taylor University, Grove City College, and The King’s College
More points mean more opportunities. We'll track your points, and contact you when you've received a new perk.
Once you reach 30 Points, you're officially IN as an Ambassador for 2018!
At 50 points, we'll add custom Praxis Academy swag (a Known Supply / Krochet Kids shirt), and another raffle entry.
