About Marching On
Since 2012, Marching On has helped MPS students achieve their college and career goals by flying to Washington, D.C. to tour universities, visit cultural institutions, and meet with government, non-profit, and business leaders. The trip is no cost to the students or their families, as the transportation, lodging, and meals are paid for by the program to ensure that all of the selected students can participate, regardless of their financial status.
I thank God for this opportunity because I never knew what my purpose on Earth was until this trip. I was always told that I couldn’t be nothing because of my past. I always asked God to show me why I should be living, because I felt there wasn’t a purpose of being on Earth. I never had anyone believe in me until this trip.

As soon as Dakyla stepped foot on the campus of Howard University for a tour during her Marching On trip, she knew she wanted to go to Howard.
She was accepted and started as freshman this past fall.
