Mercy Education Project (MEP) provides valuable services to women in Detroit. The education system does not always serve students well, and organizations that supplement and enhance the system are much needed. I have seen MEP grow over the years and become an essential part of the fabric of Southwest Detroit and the city overall. Additional resources can help MEP successfully reach even more women who need their programs.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

living in the neighborhood and hearing from staff members on the variety of success stories. I also have had brief contact with graduates who clearly hold MEP in high esteem.

I have been a volunteer for almost six years. I have helped the development director raise money to support the program. For the last several years I have been the chairperson of an auction for their annual dinner. I am committed to helping Mercy Education Project because I have heard first hand the women tell their "stories" of their accomplishments. The majority of the women receive their GED because of their commitment to the program and because of the caring teachers, staff and volunteers.

Mercy Education Project truly makes a difference to the women and girls of Detroit. It offers them a much brighter future than they would have without the added educational benefits they receive at MEP. They have a very well organized program with experienced and talented staff and volunteers. The students are enthusiastic learners and upbeat about their future.

I have been a personal donor to the mercy Education Project since I attended a site visit for the local women's foundation. I have always been impressed with their success in helping women and girls achieve their goals. The organization is well run and my donation is money well spent.

Mercy Education Project is good. They helped me get my GED. The reason I like Mercy Education Project is because I've been to other GED programs. They didn't seem to care about their students or did not care to help. But Mercy Education helped me get my GED and was very supportive.

Mercy Education Project (MEP) is a jewel of a program in the city of Detroit. It fosters the educational development of girls in the neighborhood in an after-school tutoring program and a summer enrichment program. It makes a huge difference for girls who are struggling academically and who need the devoted attention of a one-on-one tutor. In addition, MEP has a rich program of GED and career education for women. For them, it is a safe place to learn, to be challenged and encouraged to stretch to new vistas for themselves and their families. MEP provides a life-changing experience for its women students.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Although I am no longer on the staff, I find their current staff to be warm and welcoming to the participants in their programs but also to anyone else who visits, volunteers, donates, . . .

I'm a former English teacher and I love language but I was tremendously saddened by the very limited vocabulary and writing experience of the women I taught. One mother told me she was at Mercy Education Project, or MEP, because she was too embarrassed to talk with her child's teacher. Because I was able to work with just 4 students at a time, I could give them a lot of individual attention. That's what these women needed to gain--not only the vocabulary--but the self-esteem they gained as their vocabulary grew.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

. . .seeing the women "graduate" with a GED and go on to employment and/or college. More than 90% of the women who complete MEP's GED program pass the GED and every one goes on to college or job training/employment or both.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with the women--it's exciting to see them become so proud of themselves when they learn!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

highly educated and highly committed staff members--they all could be working somewhere else for lots more money but they choose to do the wonderful work of Mercy Education Project

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Increase the number of students it serves--and open other sites to provide the high quality services it offers
