New Door offers a variety of educational supports and skill-building workshops to help at-risk youth address the unique challenges and issues they face in life.
After each youth has completed an educational plan with their case manager, they receive various forms of educational support such as homework check-ins, or preparing for the GED or high school equivalency exams. New Door purchases study materials and funds testing fees for each youth. Educational support is provided by a contract instructor, New Door staff and volunteer tutors.
