Education Opens Doors (EOD) activates all students to determine and pursue an informed future. Our groundbreaking program is composed of college and career knowledge in addition to soft skills not taught in traditional academic courses. Our primary focus is to open doors for middle school students from communities of color, low-income communities, and future first generation college students.
Since 2012, we have collaborated with schools and organizations throughout the state in order to provide teaching support, instructional tools, and engaging lessons aligned to our student manual and the school's specific needs. We train teachers to implement our program during the school day, legitimizing and increasing exposure to college and career knowledge for all middle school students.
During the 2018-19 school year, EOD is serving over 12,000 middle and high students at campuses in Dallas and across North Texas through targeted partnerships with public, private, charter, and magnet schools, as well as after-school and mentor programs.
