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.
