In 2013, Open Gate, Inc. was launched with 30 students by co-founders Mildred McKinney and Denise Richardson as a special enrollment program in the Bay Area. Since its founding, Open Gate has been led by system-impacted students themselves as they act as mentors and ambassadors for the program. Open Gate reported a 90% retention rate and a 0% recidivism rate for 2018 and expects to reach 100 students enrolled in Chabot College for the Fall semester of 2019.
