What is Velocity Career Start?

Our goal is to prepare college students from underserved communities for long-term, meaningful careers in projected growth occupations through a superior program of career training that aligns academic advising, critical thinking, and career exposure and placement.

Our story…

Generational issues in our community have a gravity that can prevent our young people from elevating themselves and their futures. Velocity Career Start came about as we explored ways to help students move away from the gravity of their situations- to reach “escape velocity”- propelling them into a future of self leadership and on-going life success.

We care about our students…

Velocity students make and act upon a future-oriented commitment to academic, professional, and personal growth. They are courageous, often first-generation college students forging new paths for themselves and their families. Velocity students prepare themselves, through their college experience, to be future leaders in their organizations, industries, and communities. They also engage in activities that return their invaluable talents and leadership skills to communities in need.

 

Our beliefs

Velocity recognizes that young adults from underprivledged communities must combine work and learning at early stages to accelerate their pathways into full-time careers. We further recognize that students have complex lives that encroach on their academic achievement and career readiness. 

 

At Velocity, we are committed to two key ideas

Achievement

First, the ability to think and write critically is necessary for academic and career achievement.

Development

Second, experiential learning provides and essential bridge between ideas and capacities learned in the classrom and the development and use of skills in professional environments.
