Volunteers Needed! Mercy Education Project Needs YOU This Fall!


You Can Help Open the Door to a Brighter Future for Girls in Southwest Detroit

Mercy Education Project is recruiting adult volunteers for an after-school and Saturday tutoring program of girls in elementary, middle and high school.  We need volunteer tutors to work one-to-one with girls, grades 2-12 on remedial tutoring in reading and math, one day a week, during the academic school year.  Enthusiasm for education is a must and training is provided. You identify the best day, subject and tutoring time for you and then we match you up.  Download our flyer for more details.

"Education is an opportunity and can be transformational for our most vulnerable communities; especially those, like us, working tirelessly in search of the American Dream. Programs like Mercy Education Project have successfully removed those barriers for many and have educated our women and girls and is transforming their lives."

"….Literacy is a fundamental right and an essential building block for a productive life. Increasing adult literacy also ensures more parents can be engaged in their children’s education, ,making this a cause  critical to helping families break the cycle of poverty. Thank you to Mercy Education Project for their tireless efforts to ensure everyone has an opportunity to learn to read. Together, I know we are making a difference.”
