Educational support equipment provided

September 26, 2013
Detroit’s Mercy Education Project received a $2,750 grant from the Junior League of Detroit for its girls’ tuition and academic support programs.

Among the support programs are the use of laptops by the students and their tutors.

MEP used the money to buy support equipment for the project’s laptops.

“Technology is incorporated into all levels of MEP’s instruction,” said Amy Amador, MEP executive director, “and this cart will ensure fully-charged laptops are readily available for use by students and their tutors.”

The project was founded in 1992 to provide educational services to at-risk women and girls.

It serves nearly 300 students, offering intensive adult basic education and GED preparation for women and after-school tutoring for girls in grades first through 12th. More than 150 volunteers tutor at MEP.

For more information attend an open house 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, at the facility at 1450 Howard, Detroit.
