MCWA is a great program which teaches kids to be leaders in their schools as well as in the community. Having 2 kids in the program, the positive changes in their self esteem and seeing the friendships they develop while learning valuable skills and discipline is phenomenal. The staff is dedicated and the kids are too notch. Too see the pride they have in honoring our veterans and first responders is truly rewarding. I can't wait to see where this program takes us. Semper Fi cadets!

This group has changed our lives. I realize the bond that these volunteers build with these Marine Cadets is strong. Stronger than any sports team my son has ever been a part of. Stronger than any after school program. MCWA is a family. I am eternally grateful to this program.
