In 2015, McDonald's launched Archways to Opportunity, a comprehensive education program that provides eligible U.S. employees at participating restaurants an opportunity to earn a high school diploma, receive upfront college tuition assistance, access free education advising services and learn English as a second language. In the first year of the program, the company saw nearly 5,000 restaurant employees enroll to receive the education offerings. Now, in year two, participation in the program has more than doubled. Nearly 17,000 people have taken advantage of Archways to Opportunity offerings (total enrolled since April 2015). This is a 238% increase in participation over the course of one year.McDonald's has awarded more than $13 million in tuition assistance to employees in both college and high school. Additionally, there have been more than 100 graduates from the Career Online High School Program and over 5,200 graduates from the English Under the Arches program as part of the Archways to Opportunity program initiative.
