Mercy Education Project Volunteer tutoring a student - Mercy Education Project

“Mercy Education Project is a great organization making a difference in Southwest Detroit. I teach a math class for women studying to get their GEDs, and it’s incredible to see the strides they’re capable of making when they get the attention and small-group help that MEP offers. I also work with the girls in after-school tutoring, sweet and intelligent young ladies who all advance at least one grade level each year while at MEP.” –kmegallagher

Girlz N Tune

“I was invited to speak at one of the Girlz n Tune events. This organization is more like a family. Teaching and helping these young ladies with life in general is extremely admirable! Literally brought tears to my eyes just watching how much effort is put into developing these young ladies. And the unquestionably genuine love and support getting spread around, not to mention the positive energy, I couldn’t help but to feel the love in the room. Unquestionably, the more Girlz N Tune expands, the more young women in society will be led in the right direction and succeed in life. It’s amazing to know there’s still people out here who truly care about others . . . in this selfish world we live in.” –Marcus Jackson
