nXu is partnering with a growing number of schools across the nation through nXu’s Purpose Opportunity Program (POP) which comprehensively supports educators and schools to implement nXu’s high school and middle school curriculum along with an associated assessment system. 

Through nXu’s curriculum, students engage in career exploration through the lens of purpose and identity while cultivating their social and emotional learning skills. nXu’s curriculum strategically integrates often disparate constructs including purpose development, social-emotional learning, identity development, relationship & social capital development, and career exploration; in doing so, POP and nXu’s curriculum encourages greater academic engagement, fosters a sense of belonging among students, and instills confidence in students to navigate their professional and academic journeys. 

Since its inception, nXu has intentionally focused on serving BIPOC students & students from historically marginalized backgrounds and the educators, schools & organizations that serve them.
