😃
Krishna’s iPhone
39:27
🤠
Jesus Ojeda
39:28
so, is the total number of roles 15 positions spread across the four different academies?
Samia Afrin
39:36
It seems that the program will be taking place virtually (or may be I am wrong), but do you have to reside in CA? Can I apply even though I am from NYC? Also, do you actually get to meet Evan?
Sergio | Next Shift Learning
39:37
15 positions for each academy
Sergio | Next Shift Learning
39:43
So, a total of 60!!
Jesus Ojeda
39:56
thank you for the clarification!
Sergio | Next Shift Learning
40:01
So, for SDA, SEA, SSA: That will be based in Venice CA
Sergio | Next Shift Learning
40:09
For SLA, that will be virtual
MIRANDA WHITE
40:38
Can you apply to more than one academy?
Sergio | Next Shift Learning
40:42
For the academies in Venice Ca, you need to be able to get to Venice! So, you can live anywhere in southern CA
Lindsey Heisser | Snap Philanthropy
40:53
And yes, you get to meet a lot of Snap team members throughout the program!
jose
40:55
This is strictly only for community college students?
Samia Afrin
41:14
^ I am a first-year undergrad student
Sergio | Next Shift Learning
41:14
You can apply to more than one academy, but you will only be accepted to ONE Academy
MIRANDA WHITE
41:33
Ok, perfect. Thank you!
Jeannine Swindell
41:36
How often would participants have to travel to Venice?
Sergio | Next Shift Learning
41:51
This is open to community college students, or recent transfers. So, if you’re in the first year, you must have recently transferred from a community college
Sergio | Next Shift Learning
42:00
Travel: Monday - Thursday!
Erica Arthur
42:06
Is there an age ceiling for the academies applicants?
