The Velocity Program is the one that focuses its work on middle and high schoolers by providing an after-school program that does not only emphasizes tutoring but mentoring. Our high school mentors, and middle school mentees relate with each other and have a lot to learn from other in order for both to achieve success. We believe that not only having good grades is good, but also to know how to better take decisions in life. We need volunteers who can bring lots of energy, help set up, and guide high-schoolers to lead in mentorship and tutoring opportunities.The after-school program happens at McCollum high school and Harlandale high school | Tuesdays & Wednesdays | 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. About Boy With a Ball
Boy With a Ball is an international not-for-profit organization based in Lawrenceville, GA, working here in Gwinnett County, across the U.S., in Latin America and in Africa. Our name came from a little boy's discovery that the ball he was clinging to as a security object could be used for so much more. We help people use the lives they hold in their hands to love and transform their cities.
Boy With a Ball mobilizes young people as volunteers to become the superheroes that our communities need to help lift hurting youth out of distressed neighborhoods and schools so that they can reach their dreams.
