OVERVIEW OF ROLE

nXu is seeking an exceptional educator to serve as the Lead Compass Coach (i.e. lead facilitator and program manager) of nXu’s programming in San Antonio during the 2020-21 school year.  The Lead Compass Coach will facilitate all of nXu’s student-facing purpose development programming.  In the short term, this will consist of online delivery of our programming.  Once the pandemic subsides, facilitation will occur both onsite at schools during the week (one or two days a week)and out of school, on select weeknights and weekend days.  In addition to facilitating student-facing programming, the Lead Compass Coach may engage in adult-facing facilitation and trainings.  In addition, this team member will play a key role in recruiting students to participate in nXu’s out-of-school programming and in securing and cultivating partnerships with schools and organizations.

The ideal Lead Compass Coach will not only possess excellent facilitation skills but will also exhibit leadership and enthusiasm that inspires fellows, parents, volunteers, and other members of the San Antonio community to invest in our mission. The Lead Compass Coach will receive coaching and support from nXu’s national Compass Director and from nXu’s Executive Director.  Logistically, this individual will need to be available, on average, for approximately 5 to 15 hours per week.

Mission: 

nXu is a non-profit organization whose mission is to catalyze and equip youth and adults to explore, articulate, and pursue their purpose.

Programs: 
  • Our Methodology: We have developed a research & evidence-based, 4-phase, purpose development methodology called “The Compass” that serves as our learning standards.  
  • Our Products & Services: We offer a training program as well as our purpose development curriculum to schools, and we also directly implement programming with students both in school and out of school. 
  • Our Target: Through our products and services, we have served high school students from over 50 district, charter, and private schools across the country.  We are seeking to partner with additional schools and organizations that are interested in fostering a sense of purpose among their students.
Why Work For Us?: 

A sense of purpose acts as an inner compass that—when combined with skills training and community support—allows young people to live in alignment with their highest potential.  Thus, we have developed a research & evidence-based purpose development methodology and curriculum that we have implemented in-school and out-of-school with high school students in Chicago, Newark, New York, San Antonio and Seattle.  Through this direct programming, we have cultivated a deep understanding of the implementation needs of our purpose development program.  Leveraging these insights, we are establishing a teacher training program and school-based curriculum that will allow a growing number of high schools to cultivate a sense of purpose in the lives of their students.
