Nothing to do?
Tired of the same old, same old?
Check out Velocity! - A place for youth… Built by youth!
In 2000, MYAC initiated a survey to Burlington youth to find out which issue was most important to them. The majority of respondents said that there was no safe, fun, youth-friendly atmosphere in Burlington for youth to hang out at on Friday and Saturday nights.
MYAC decided to do something about this problem. The result was Velocity, Burlington’s newest City facility, built for youth BY youth. Everything from the name, to the wall colours to the location was chosen by young people from across the city of Burlington.
Velocity is open to all high school students in Burlington. It is open Friday and Saturday nights, 8:00 to 12:00, and admission is $6. It is located at 3230 Fairview Street (just behind the Burlington Mall, in the old Canadian Tire location). We want to see YOU there!
