Guilford A Better Chance

Improving educational opportunities for academically gifted young women of color for over 40 years.

Guilford A Better Chance offers intelligent and talented young women of color from under-represented communities the opportunity to attend a high quality public high school and live in a caring community with a strong support system. Our goal is to provide our scholars with the tools they need to assume positions of responsibility and leadership in American society. Guilford A Better Chance is dedicated to providing an environment for these young scholars that will enable them to explore their interests, develop their strengths, and benefit from opportunities they might otherwise be denied. The education our scholars receive at Guilford High School will allow them to excel and compete effectively in colleges, universities and the workplace.

It is true that it takes a village to raise a child. Guilford ABC’s board, staff, host families, the faculty at GHS, numerous town merchants and service providers all contribute to making this program possible. In turn, our scholars add immeasurably to the quality and diversity of life in this very special community.
