OVERVIEW OF NXU
nXu is a national non-profit initiative that supports youth to explore their identities, develop a sense of purpose, cultivate social capital, and foster social-emotional (SEL) wellness to succeed in life after high school and pursue compelling careers. Since inception, nXu has intentionally served BIPOC students and students from historically marginalized communities—and the educators and schools serving them—for whom career exploration opportunities integrating purpose and identity development have been sorely lacking.
Few schools are designed to intentionally foster youths’ sense of purpose, identity, social capital, and SEL skills needed to navigate our changing world. And few provide space for youth to deeply explore their purpose & identity and to engage in career exploration through these lenses. In response, nXu has developed a middle and high school curriculum—and an associated assessment system—that strategically integrates purpose, SEL, identity, and social capital development as well as career exploration.
To support effective implementation of its curriculum, nXu has established a curriculum implementation support model named Purpose Opportunity Program (POP) through which they are partnering with schools and youth-serving organizations across 20+ states. nXu’s long-term aspiration is to become the preeminent, high quality, purpose, SEL, and career development solution in the country.
