Open Door is a program of South Hayward United Methedist Church for women who desire to improve themselves in the United States. This program helps them to learn English as a Second Language, arts and crafts, and the computer skills that enable them to find jobs in the future.

The program has nursery care for the students' peace of mind.

The program is designed to maintain a peaceful and respectful working environment. The students receive individual attention to help them understand the class material. The goal is for each student to draw on real life lessons learned in class that will help them after the class is over.

The ESL classes are Mondays and Fridays from 9:00 am to 11:00 am, September through May. ESL classes are on vacation June through August.
Line dancing is 9:30 am to 11:00 am on Wednesdays and Fridays. There is a $2 donation.
