When you volunteer with Open Doors Academy, you bring your talents and expertise to the kids and to the organization. You provide an invaluable gift of your time. When you give time to a young person you let them know they matter and that they are valued.

Open Doors Academy provides a number of volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Below we have listed a few. Our volunteer projects range in frequency from weekly to annually. We also welcome your ideas too. Please feel free to contact us if you have a talent to share!
