Make your passion your profession.
Become a Spy Hop apprentice to get the skills you need to get the job you want! By becoming a film, design, audio, or music apprentice you will have the opportunity to work on client and personal projects to strengthen your skills and build your portfolio. Jobs such as social media content producer, game designer, concert/music producer, graphic designer, video content producer, audio engineer, or sound designer are all examples of career paths that would be available to you to pursue through higher education or direct apprenticeship to job pipelines.
Some apprenticeship programs offer payment to students; if you successfully complete a four-month paid apprenticeship, you can earn a $200 stipend for your work.
Apprenticeship Program Details:
- The apprenticeship program is offered three times per year: fall, spring, and summer.
- The apprenticeship program is intended for intermediate to advanced students and will work at a fast pace. If you have any questions, please contact the program mentor directly to discuss your interests and skills.
- The apprenticeship program mimics the expectations of an employer/employee relationship. Just like a job, there is an interview requirement prior to being accepted into the program. After completing the online application, prospective students will be contacted by the program mentor to schedule a one-on-one Zoom interview. The interview is simply a way for the mentor and student to get to know each other and to assess interests, skill level, and set expectations for the program. Prospective students will be notified prior to the start of class of their acceptance into the program.
- Students participating in the Paid Apprenticeships are expected to complete all projects in order to earn a stipend.
Access to Gear and Technology Matters
We believe that access to high-quality gear, technology, and equipment should not be a barrier to being an active participant in your community. Spy Hop provides professional gear and software for all participating students in classes at the Kahlert Youth Media Art Center. Professional gear is available to rent for FREE for students who may need to use gear and equipment outside of class time for assignments and special projects.
