Roscoe Compton-Kelly is the CEO of Education Opens Doors, a nonprofit organization that partners with middle schools across the country, training teachers to equip their students with the college and career knowledge and skills they need for long-term success.

“I was first hand witness to many of the education inequities that plagued our system.”

“I still experienced a shocking revelation when it came time to make my choice for what my future would look like.”

“For someone so sure of their pathway in life, I was left with a profound feeling of confusion over what to do next.”

“As the new CEO of Education Opens Doors, I reflect on the millions of students each year who go through similar experiences such as I did.”

“We intend to continue to fight for equity for all students, and to ensure that our parents and teachers are equipped with the resources that will lead to true systemic change.”
