Location: San Antonio, Texas
Type: Part-Time Consultant (5-15 hours per week)
OVERVIEW OF NXU
The Short Version: At nXu, we believe that it's not enough to teach kids academic skills; We owe it to them to help them identify and pursue their purpose in the world. We work with K-12 educators to support their work in developing their students' sense of purpose. We also work directly with high school and college students to articulate their purpose and map the path they will take to live their lives with purpose.
The Long Version: nXu is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to catalyze and equip youth and adults to explore, articulate, and pursue their purpose by developing social and emotional learning skills. Overseen by nationally recognized educators including the co-founders of Transcend Education, we have developed a research & evidence-based purpose development methodology, curriculum, and program model that can be deployed in-person, online, and on a blended basis. We offer a training program as well as a purpose development curriculum to schools, and we also directly implement programming both online and in person with students both in school and out of school.
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 2021-22 school year. The Lead Compass Coach will facilitate all of nXu’s student-facing purpose development programming and may also facilitate educator-facing 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, this team member will represent nXu in the greater San Antonio area, with partner organizations, potential funders, and other key constituents. This person 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. Logistically, this individual will need to be available, on average, for approximately 5 to 15 hours per week.
The ideal Lead Compass Coach will not only possess excellent facilitation skills, but will also exhibit leadership and enthusiasm that inspires fellows, families, volunteers, and other members of the San Antonio community to invest in our mission.
This is a fast-paced, part-time, virtual and in person role. The point of contact for this person is Cat Lum, nXu’s Director of Programs. This person will also work closely with Yutaka Tamura, Executive Director of nXu, and Jabali Sawicki, Compass Director at nXu.
