Life Coaches

Xenos is reaching more urban-background low-income students than ever before. Many of them come into the church struggling academically, lacking access to good health care, and unprepared to face the demands of living as a productive adult in society.

With a little help and encouragement, these students can live with other Christians, land a good job, and go to college. Without help, simple things like not being able to get a driver’s license impede their progress toward these goals. Volunteer Life Coaches provide practical guidance that is crucial to help students take the next step toward becoming independent, self-sufficient adults.

Life coaches meet with low-income students weekly to help them develop life skills:

  • Landing and keeping a job.
  • Accessing good health care.
  • Completing high school and pursuing further education.
  • Accessing financial aid.
  • Following a budget.
  • Working hard and being a valuable employee.
  • Loving family members and setting healthy boundaries.
  • Developing healthy habits: eating well, exercising, planning, establishing routines, etc.
