I have been honored with the pleasure of volunteering for March for Education. to assist in parades meetings and other services over the years. This thriving organization can be a great help to the children if they are supported. The people involved support the organization with their own contributions with the support of a few faithful business owners. The community should really wake up and recognize what they have right under their noses. This organization offered after school activities in school activities and even the opportunity to gain experience for college students. It’s a vast variety of support right under the communities noses. WAKE UP!!

I believe in "the children are the future" and the March for Education knows and believes in the same thing. If we could only get the parents and the Board of Education to believe maybe the children can have a future. Keep up the great work March for education!

I had an amazing experience being here with all the youth for a positive cause. Mr. Timothy is one of the best mentors to have. He does so much for the youth with love and compassion. I was more than happy to be apart and help the organization anyway I can.

This foundation is great and doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Our children's education is number one, but it won't get better in Bridgeport if we don't help. Support this foundation, they will do great things for our children if they have the resources.

I have volunteered my time with March for Education from its conception and found it to be an added source to the community for young people to be apart of. With me volunteering and being a part of this organization my daughter, my son, my niece and my sister-in-law have also find a place in March for Education.
for example; My daughter at 15 have learned secretarial skills by volunteering to take notes at meetings it was not easy at first but she was able to do so by receiving the help and instruction from someone who knew how to do it.
MY son at 13 put his leadership and promotional skills to work in MFE by recruiting his peers and older to help make a successful outing.
They all learned the concept of planning an event and what it takes as well how important it is to give back to the community.
I have also been able to see talented youth given the platform and opportunity to display their talents and gain confidence in themselves.
Also because of MFE some student were able to go our Capital had a great experience.
I strongly believe if we continue to gain the recognition of our leaders and community and financial support MFE will grow and do more.

This organization is like no other. Connecticut Against Violence Inc. uses Hip Hop music and entertainment as a way to engage with the youth and get our message of violence prevention to them. As the Executive Director who have volunteered to March For Education for numerous special events, I can testify that they uses similar tactic and it works for them. I have personally volunteered as a Disc Jockey for their events as well as the event planning team. I urge you to support this organization for the sake of our youth who needs a better educate to succeed.
