Project Discovery Walkathon

Each spring, the City of Alexandria hosts a Walkathon, the proceeds of which benefit Project Discovery. Ninety-one percent of last year’s Project Discovery graduating seniors continued their education at two or four-year colleges or technical schools. The 2014 Walkathon will take place Saturday, April 26 at Fort Ward Park.

Project Discovery: Empowerment & College Preparation

Based at T.C. Williams High School and the Minnie Howard 9th Grade Center, Project Discovery prepares and motivates low income and first generation college-eligible students to access opportunities in higher education.  Through workshops and trips to college campuses, Project Discovery provides vital information about how to set and achieve educational goals. This program is supported by a Project Discover Advisory Board whose mission is to raise funds, promote community involvement and foster positive public relations.
