Mission: Guilford abc is a life-changing program that offers academically gifted girls of color the opportunity to attend guilford high school, live in a caring community surrounded by a strong professional support team, and realize their individual potential. These young women, chosen from many applicants to the national abc program, come from under-represented communities where they lack access to quality educational experiences. Our program's primary mission is to provide these scholars with a better chance to excel in high school, attend a quality college or university, and lead a fulfilling personal and professional life. Guilford abc, which opened its doors in 1974, was one of the very first community-based abc programs in the nation. Since its inception, guilford abc has sent more than 55 young women on to colleges and universities in the country, many of them on full academic scholarships. Given their achievements, many of these guilford abc graduates have become real-life role models.
Programs: To provide housing, food, supervision, academic counseling for inner city students attending guilford high school.
