Education Opens Doors + WFAA Partner for Advocacy Campaign

September 4, 2020

Even with the challenges presented by the pandemic, Education Opens Doors is proud to be utilizing our new, all-digital, distance learning platform, and curriculum. Our focus remains on equipping as many students as possible with the “bigger why” behind school during critical decision-making years.

One key way we’ll be amplifying our reach this Fall is through an incredible partnership with Dallas’ WFAA – Channel 8. We are grateful to be the chosen nonprofit for their 2020 Advocacy Campaign! Keep an eye out for special “Originals” stories airing on Sunday evenings, Middle School Minutes featuring our team and partner counselors, WFAA Academy segments offering tips and insights…and an on-air Phone Bank fundraising drive on Sept. 25.

To kick-off the WFAA campaign, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Talent Allen Anderson was featured on WFAA Academy to discuss 5 major milestones in college planning for parents. He also highlights the importance of beginning the planning process in middle school as students are making pivotal decisions about their futures.
