Mercy Education Project (MEP) is one of Detroit’s most established and successful tutoring and educational assistance programs for women and girls. Founded in 1992 and based in Southwest Detroit, MEP is celebrating its 30th Anniversary promoting access to boundless opportunities for women and girls.

Diversity is our strength: The students in our Women's Program are 52% Black/African American; 19% Middle Eastern/African; 17% Hispanic/Latina. The students in our Women's Program are 97% Hispanic/Latina. All are welcome, all are embraced, all are educated. Mercy Education Project believes every woman and girl has a right to reach her full potential. 

Our students’ track records are impressive. 100% of our middle school girls earn high school diplomas and 100% of our high school seniors go on to college. Among women in our GED program, all women make significant yearly progress, most improve by at least 2 grade levels a year. 60% of GED graduates report they go on to college, employment or job training.

These funds will be used to help our growing programs. As we begin to emerge from the COVID pandemic, adult education and tutoring are necessary and essential. Thank you for helping MEP provide much needed assistance to our students in continuing their educational and social/emotional success.
