Velocity is an afterschool mentoring program where high school students are trained to be life-changing mentors to middle school students while being supported by a team of volunteers. Velocity is a high-impact youth development program designed to promote students’ connectedness to a positive view of their future, to their families, to their schools, and to their peers. Velocity is both fun and rewarding! We get to know students through games, small groups, and activities. As a volunteer, your role would be to help the program run smoothly and get to know students! The program happens on Wednesday afternoons. Since it is a school based program, we ask that volunteers commit by semester. We would love to connect with you!
