About Us

Our Mission

OpenDoors breaks the cycle of poverty through education, one child at a time.

Our Vision

We envision a community where all  children succeed.

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.

Who Benefits?

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.
