Explore the ACADEMY
I was thrilled to have several leaders in our business attend Academy 2020. Their experience has exceeded my wildest expectations. It has led to rich internal dialogue, and provided them the framework to think more rigorously and creatively about how our business practices might be more redemptive.

Academy Partner, Nonprofit Mentor
As a young leader taking over a generational family business, Praxis has played a transformational role in equipping me to pursue redemptive entrepreneurship within an established company. I truly consider many of my peers and mentors in this community to be lifetime friends.

2019 Academy, Emerging Founder program
I'm grateful for my Praxis experiences because they've given me language and a community to enrich my understanding of how ventures can play a redemptive part in the world. I've been empowered to explore ways I can contribute to this work.
2017 Academy, Emerging Founder program
One invaluable way that Praxis has impacted me is the rich language that filled my imagination. These new ideas helped to articulate and fill in the gaps that existed deep in my soul. The precious wisdom I gained from expert speakers, the vulnerable conversations I had with my action group, and the new relationships I built there will be a sacred memory for me.

2020 Academy Core
I learned how it is not always enough to be ethical but can be necessary to go as far as sacrifice to participate in the work of God. I will now look for situations to practice sacrifice so that we all win.

2020 Academy Core
I'm honestly awed that the Redemptive Frame exists. Ethical entrepreneurship already seemed a lofty goal, and I almost tricked myself into thinking I was a good person for convincing my business partner to pursue it with me, when Praxis came into my life quite suddenly. It really is going to be a lifelong exercise, and I'm thankful God showed me how to fully integrate the spiritual into work.

Thank you for helping me transform how I view my vocation and exploration in business and entrepreneurship. I'm humbled by the posture this organization takes, and am astounded by the community you have developed. I'm very proud to be a part of Praxis, and often find myself talking about Praxis to my friends around the world.

2020 Academy Core
The Academy is anchored by its two large-format events, Kickoff and Capstone, with weekly Course sessions (shorter live virtual events where leading practitioners share frameworks, lessons, and advice) in between.
Throughout the Academy experience, participants learn from 30+ leading practitioners. Additionally, those in add-on Tracks will meet a half-dozen additional mentors in a small group setting.
Participants also benefit from the community they build in their Action Groups—curated small groups led by a facilitator. They encourage and challenge one another, provide feedback on ideas, and open up networks for future opportunities.
At the Capstone Event, Participants will put the finishing touches on their personal roadmap: a plan for how their practices and decision-making will move toward the redemptive edge in their career or venture.
Academy's live sessions are of varying times— all thoughtfully curated and designed for the virtual format. See the full schedule here.

We invite you to apply to the 2021 Academy through an online form with a handful of open-ended questions to help us get to know you. Priority for admission, Course and Track selection, and scholarship are based on when you apply, so we highly encourage early applications.
When you apply to the Academy, you'll share your Course(s) and any add-on Track preferences.
Tracks have a limited number of seats, so there is a chance you may be accepted to your Course, but not your preferred Track. Applying for a Track in no way affects your admission to a Course.
From our first year, we’ve designed and led Academy to create a high-value communal learning experience that will pay dividends long past the end of the program. Financial concerns should not hinder anyone from attending, so scholarships are available. Anyone may apply for need-based scholarships; organizational scholarships are for people affiliated with a particular organization. If you were invited by an organization to apply to Academy, be sure to include that affiliation in your application.
Our team will review applications after each Application Round, and send decisions about a week later via email. We’ll ask admitted participants to submit a deposit to claim their seat within 7 days of acceptance.

provide vocational training through praxis
Join us in bringing vocational training on redemptive action to your business, nonprofit, school, ministry, church, organization or local community.
A decade into our work at Praxis, we’ve had the honor of working alongside hundreds of entrepreneurs leading organizations of various sizes. In the process, we’ve learned to adapt the training for our flagship Accelerator programs to equip leaders at nearly every level who are seeking to put their faith into action through their work.
We’ve developed four ways to collaborate with Praxis through vocational trainings that spark redemptive imagination and spur on creative action in your context.
