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 students sign a contract to be drug and alcohol free and sexually abstinent for the next year. There is an in-school and an out-of-school component. 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. They talk to the younger students about their own experiences and encourage them to make positive choices. Out of school, Velocity hosts events and activities for TA/Velocity students across the city where they can have fun without being confronted with drugs or alcohol.
