In 2023, we launched the Step Up Sa Pangarap movement to celebrate, empower, and encourage the achievements of working students. As members of our community, you've been a vital part of this movement from the moment you decided to Step Up for your own dreams.

If you're a working student, this movement is for you. We see you and we celebrate you – your career aspirations, sleepless nights, profound sacrifices, delicate life balance, and more. Step Up sa Pangarap is your acknowledgement, a recognition that a college education, especially with MMDC, empowers you to achieve your dreams.

As part of MMDC’s Step Up sa Pangarap movement, we are starting the "Kwentong Working Student'' initiative, and we want YOU to be a part of it. Now is your time to shine! Your story is powerful, and we know you can inspire fellow working students, not just at MMDC but beyond.
