Group of young male teens

Velocity is an afterschool program that we created and run, which is open to all middle school students who identify as male. Velocity is designed to help participants increase their self-esteem, and the program encourages a healthy and active lifestyle by offering a chance to try out new activities in a non-competitive setting. Participants also build their confidence and communication skills.

Velocity’s activities include:

  • Hiking and orienteering
  • Climbing
  • Break dancing
  • Cooking
  • Martial arts
  • Biking
  • Weight training

Velocity isn’t just about activities. We also create a safe space where participants can discuss issues they are facing. Discussion topics include relationships, social media pressures, stress, respect, nutrition, and role models.

Velocity is an environment where emotions can be expressed, and close relationships are developed in a non-judgmental arena.

Program Format
Velocity offers sessions once a week for six weeks. Each session includes an activity geared toward health and fitness, as well as a facilitated discussion.

Program Fee
Velocity costs $60 per participant. Scholarships are available and we will work with each school to meet their needs.
