My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mercy Education Project, Detroit, MI, USA
Respect. Challenge. Support. Team work. Four action words that keep me volunteering at Mercy Education Project. These words interplay among the staff and the women students we teach and tutor.
For some of our students, they are experiencing these concepts for the first time. As they follow their studies at MEP, the women not only learn to respect themselves but others. They not only challenge themselves but challenge and support each other. Teachers, volunteers, and students work together. Diversity naturally happens at MEP. Appreciating everyone's unique gifts is a learning experience.
My favorite moments at MEP have been the mornings our students receive the news that classmates have succeeded on a GED test. There is cheering, tears, and congratulations from all. That is teamwork and the MEP family enjoying success.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
like to see Mercy Education Project have a larger presence in Metro Detroit. My wish would be for Mercy to grow an Endowment Fund. The organization needs a larger facility and that won't happen without many friends and supporters in the region.
