THE STORY:

Mercy Education Project is a private, nonprofit charitable organization with 22 years of experience boosting the academic advancement of low-income girls and women. Over 300 women and girls of diverse ethnic, racial and religious backgrounds go through our programs each year – ready to take a new step toward academic success and a brighter future.

Tutorial, ACT preparation, and college and career preparedness programs are provided to over 150 girls annually. On average, girls improve one grade level in reading and/or math for every two semesters of tutoring. Every 8th grade girl who participated entered high school. Most of our participants will be the first in their family to attend college. Through our programs, they improve their academic skills, develop leadership skills, and increase their knowledge of college and careers.

Literacy training and GED preparation, along with job readiness training and other auxiliary services, are provided to over 150 women annually. Over 50% read at or below the 5th grade level when they started the program. Of the women who complete the GED preparation program, over 90 percent achieve the GED. An average of 80% of our GED graduates go on to college, employment or a job training program.  At Mercy Education Project, girls and women fulfill their dream of educational success, providing limitless opportunities to realize future dreams and goals.

Founded by the Sisters of Mercy of Detroit in 1992 to provide tutoring for economically disadvantaged girls in southwest Detroit, Mercy Education Project today offers a spectrum of programs to serve the remedial educational needs of at-risk women and girls in one of Detroit’s poorest areas. In 2013, Mercy Education Project was selected as a winner of the Crain's Best Managed Nonprofit Award.
