Archways to Opportunity®


McDonald’s and its independent franchisees are committed to helping employees further their education and achieve their dreams.

To help anyone who works at a company-owned or independently franchised restaurant, we created Archways to Opportunity, a comprehensive education strategy with multiple programs that give people an opportunity to grow and learn – no matter where they are on their journey.

Programs are available to McDonald’s employees and the employees of participating independent franchisees. Here are just a few ways Archways to Opportunity can help employees on the path to success:

  • Improve English skills

  • Earn a high school diploma*

  • Work toward a college degree

  • Get help making an education and career plan with advisors*
