nXu is a non-profit organization that provides programming for high school students in NYC to explore, articulate, and pursue their purpose in life. nXu is launching a selective, 2-year, out-of-school fellowship program encompassing the 10th and 11th-grade years. The fellowship brings together 10th graders to explore, articulate, and pursue their purpose in life. nXu Fellows are drawn from a range of district, charter, private and parochial schools to form an intentionally diverse cohort that bridges race, gender, and class lines.

During the school year, nXu Fellows gather twice a month for 4-hour sessions led by a Lead Compass Coach and a team of Compass Coaches.

We are seeking committed volunteer Compass Coaches who will lead 10th grade nXu Fellows through the year-long Purpose Exploration Curriculum. Each Compass Coach will be responsible for a Compass Team (~8 participants). Compass Coaches will guide their Compass Team through a series of pre-scripted and planned immersive activities, conversations, exercises, and reflections to help Fellows bond with one another and begin to understand themselves better.

We are looking for volunteers who:

  • Are eager and excited to be trained and coached to provide an excellent experience for students.
  • Show concrete evidence of and an interest in exploring their self-development.
  • Are intellectually curious, vulnerable, and willing to have a good time.
  • Are willing to share their personal and professional wisdom and experiences.
  • Demonstrate excellent interpersonal and communication skills and are capable of delivering pre-scripted content.
  • Want to guide nXu participants to reach their desired life purpose goals and help them reflect on various experiences.
  • Are excited to explore NYC with a group of GREAT kids (rain or shine).
