 Rolling Admissions Process

We accept ongoing applications and begin scheduling interviews in the order your application was received.  The application fee does not guarantee admittance to the program. It does however guarantee you a one-on-one interview with Yaya, which is something between a first date, a job interview, and an intuitive energy reading and is generally agreed to have its own value as an experience whether or not you end up deciding to pursue apprenticeship afterwards. Spots are filled after the completion of applicants interview.  If the program fills for the next group before your scheduled interview date, you will have the option of either receiving a refund or being interviewed for the next group.
