about us

ABC National Program

For two generations, A Better Chance has placed talented young people of color into the nation’s leadership pipeline through increased access to academically rigorous independent and public schools. Our record of success is evident in our 13,000 Alumni who have become great innovators, thinkers, and leaders in their respective fields.

We have helped transform 13,000 lives. Our Alumni largely credit A Better Chance as the catalyst for their accomplishments, with nearly 75% attributing their success to the educational opportunities we provided. In 60 years since Brown vs. Board of Education we have seen our Alumni break ground as leaders in business, government, media, and medicine. We will not rest until there are many thousands more.

Our mission is to increase substantially the number of well-educated young people of color who are capable of assuming positions of responsibility and leadership in American society.
