The Opening Doors for Children program serves thousands of children and schools.  Our volunteers work in their communities by helping students in need of tutors, mentors and role models.

Opening Doors for Children enriches the learning opportunities of young people and affirms that we can make a difference in a child's life.  The program is about helping a child with reading comprehension or providing the opportunity for a student to take home a book his or her family could not afford.  It's about proving to a foster child that there are constants in life, like a mentor, or providing a child in need with a caring tutor.
