What is Velocity?
Velocity is a program for 7th and 8th grade students that helps students live with integrity and serve as positive role models for their peers. All the Velocity students pledge to be drug/alcohol free and sexually abstinent teens for the next year. At each school with a Velocity program, the upper-classmen go into classrooms of lower-classmen and present lessons on topics like peer pressure, stress, relationships, family, etc. Each year, more than 200 Velocity students will impact 2,000+ of their 6th grade peers! They talk to the younger students from their own experiences and encourage them to make positive choices while talking to them about relevant teen issues.
On top of that, imagine tons of laughter, acceptance, freedom to be your real self, and fellow middle school students supporting one another and influencing each other in positive directions and you have a snapshot of what it's like to be in Velocity!
Teens, you can be an incredible difference maker in your schools and find an amazing group of supportive friends by joining Velocity this school year. Our events are TONS of friend and all about giving you a fun, safe place to be yourself and grow as a person. So sign up, invite your friends, and get ready for an incredible year!
