OpenDoors helps students reach their fullest potential through education, enrichment and advocacy, ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty.
We envision a strong local community where all children are inspired and educated.
How does OpenDoors work?
Working in partnership with parents and schools, OpenDoors increases access to mentoring, tutoring, school events, sports and extracurricular activities, summer camp, and other opportunities that allow each child to be successful and feel inspired.
OpenDoors’ method is to intentionally work with a small group of students (approximately 50) providing very personalized long-term support. We collaborate with guardians, families, and schools to surround each child with the intensive resources he or she needs to succeed. Each child is provided an individualized plan for enrichment and education, coordinated by a strong network of our trained TeamLeaders, volunteers and educational professionals.
The aim of OpenDoors is to promote equity by providing access for children who are growing up in poverty, and who face barriers to educational success. We are united in our commitment to fairness, and we work together as a team to change children’s lives.
OpenDoors serves school-aged children living below the poverty level, and their families. We prioritize children who have experienced multi-generational poverty. Our work affects individual students, families, schools, and local communities.
