Ridgefield A Better Chance Mission

Our mission is to provide academically talented and highly motivated young women of color from educationally underserved areas the opportunity to live in our community and to study at Ridgefield’s public high school. We provide educational, social, and cultural enrichment as we strive to prepare our Scholars to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Eight young women, grades 9-12, reside in the Ridgefield A Better Chance (RABC) house under the care of the Resident Director and Assistant Resident Director, with the guidance of RABC Board of Directors, and with support from their host families and countless other volunteers.  Since 1987, fifty-eight RABC Scholars have graduated from Ridgefield High School and have gone on to major universities and colleges.
