In the past 50 years, A Better Chance has provided high-quality educational opportunities for over 15,000 students that would not have been able to afford or have access to them otherwise.
They do this by recruiting, placing, and providing financial and educational support for students to attend, currently, 350 of the country's top secondary institutions across the country. They have also concurrently helped integrate and create a culture of diversity in many of these schools.
Historically, 96 percent of graduates of A Better Chance programs enroll in college, compared to 24 percent of students of color nationwide. 100 percent of students in their programs in 2015 went directly on to pursue a higher education.
