Established in 1967, A Better Chance of Andover is the oldest continuously running Community School affiliate of the national A Better Chance Inc. organization, whose 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.

A Better Chance of Andover has been assisting talented youth of color to find the opportunity to achieve their dreams through education. We bring motivated students of color to live in Andover, where they attend Andover High School to better prepare for college. Thanks to your generosity, we provide our students with a house on Main Street and a complete network of support and love.
