Most of the children OpenDoors has the honor to work with, are preschool or elementary school aged. Jasmine, however, came into the program as an 11th grader at Asheville High School. Though her grades were solid, her conduct led her to the brink of losing it all.

Believing in her potential, OpenDoors got involved and helped Jasmine and her mom navigate a “credit recovery” program through Asheville High summer school at the Reid Center and got her into a GED program at AB-Tech. Jasmine not only finished the program – she graduated a full semester early!

She is now working towards an Associates Degree from AB-Tech and plans to pursue a 4-year degree in the future. Jasmine is also a valuable volunteer within OpenDoors.
