How long is the Apprenticeship?
The Apprenticeship runs from mid-Jan through mid-Sept. Your first four weeks as an Apprentice will be intensive training at the Axis HQ to prepare you for traveling, speaking, and mentoring students, but you will learn as you travel.
How many presentations will I need to learn?
You will need to learn about 21 presentations or 24 hours worth of material. Don’t worry, we will give you the information, skills, practice, and confidence you need to succeed!
What are the Axis presentations like?
Our presentations are highly interactive and visual- very different from a typical chapel or classroom setting. Axis speakers are always engaging with the audience to maintain the student’s energy. We speak to the students through a familiar medium by using 50+ media clips per presentation in order to establish a relatable framework to create space for meaningful conversations. Above all, the presentation sessions encourage students to analyze pop-culture through the lens of a Christian worldview.

Where would I live?
If you don’t already live in Colorado Springs, your residency will be discussed during the hiring process
Do I get any time off and/or free time?
Yes, there are opportunities for time off and free time. Apprentices will be expected to work no more than eight hours per day when you are at Axis HQ.
Due to the nature of an Apprentices schedule, time for rest will depend on the length of travel and commitments on the road, however there will be at least one day per week designated for rest while traveling. Upon returning to Colorado Springs, there will be time allotted for rest in consideration to the number of days on the road.
What can I do during my time off?
During time off we encourage all staff to take advantage of the exciting things to do in Colorado Springs; whether you enjoy attending concerts, exploring the outdoors, or appreciate local coffee shops, there’s always something to do! However you best rejuvenate, it is essential to utilize your time off to rest and process your travels. We recommend staying in Colorado Springs during your time off and investing in the community around you and one outside of Axis to cultivate new friendships!
