Born out of a Passion to meet needs
Launching in 2020, the Net’s founders Jeff and Jennifer Weston set out to make a difference in the lives of post-secondary students through intentional relationship that focuses on each individual and their unique needs while in school. Recognizing that new students at a college or university are usually living on their own for the first time, The Net aims to make the transition from home to school, and then from school to work, as hope-filled as possible.
Through a range of initiatives and programs, both in house and through community partners, The Net connects students to supports and communities that foster healthy lifestyles in the areas of social, psychological, physical and spiritual wellness. Focusing on student-centric planning has not only built the foundation for current programming streams, but also recognizes the challenges that many international students face and has presented the chance to adapt the initiatives to address the cultural integration hurdles that are having an impact on students’ daily lives.
The Net is here to make a difference, to bring hope and offer a stable path to personal growth and wellness in students in ways that the class room can’t provide.
