About Education Opens Doors

Founded in 2012, Education Opens Doors equips more than 12,000 middle school students every year to uncover the “bigger why” behind school during critical decision-making years. We train middle school teachers with a college and career readiness program to meet a pressing need in our education system: a lack of dedicated time during the school day to provide students with the knowledge and skills to navigate their college and career options - and to have the strong social and emotional skills that are so critical in life. Through EOD, students primarily from low economic backgrounds and communities of color, go from receiving the national average of 38 minutes of college and career counseling over 4 years to 900 minutes in just one year.
