Velocity Adventure

Who we are

Velocity is an adventure based program designed to build life skills, foster personal development, encourage healthy choices, and build positive interpersonal and community relationships to youth between the ages of 12 – 17. Participants who are selected for Velocity will receive one-on-one support and be challenged physically, emotionally, and mentally with weekly adrenaline pumping activities like rock-climbing, scuba diving, overnight wilderness adventures and more!

Who we serve

The Velocity Adventure program serves youth between the ages of 12 – 17. The program targets but is not limited to youth who are deemed to be at risk for substance use/abuse, lack of connection to school, and/or early aggressive behavior. Because transportation is provided to all activities, the program is restricted to residents of the St. John’s metro area. There are no fees and no experience is required.

How to volunteer

Velocity Adventure has volunteer opportunities from time to time. Our volunteers accompany groups on outings and may assist in food preparations for learning/drop-in sessions.

Also, If you have some expertise in an area that may be of interest to our target demographic, and would like to facilitate a learning session, we’d like to hear from you!
