Apprenticeship Program

The future of work is online.

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. By successfully completing a two-month apprenticeship you can earn a $200 stipend for your work. 

Apprenticeship Program Details:

  • 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 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. Therefore, Spy Hop has gear packages available to rent for FREE for any student who needs it in order to take a Spy Hop class. Gear can be picked up and dropped off at Spy Hop’s downtown facilities and kept for the duration of the program. Gear packages are coordinated directly with Spy Hop’s Program Director, Jeremy Chatelain.

Please review Spy Hop’s Gear Check-Out Policies.
