About

A Better Chance A Better Community (ABC2) was founded in 2012 by Mr. Chester Williams to “empower young people by providing a life skills program that promotes positive values, healthy habits, and education through community development, culture, and awareness– resulting in real life power, World Changers as Game Changers”

The World Changers Program is a network of youth working collectively for positive community change.

In the seven years since its founding, A Better Chance, A Better Community(ABC2) has played a major role in the positive transformation of the Roanoke Valley from an area with too many unproductive, unsupervised kids with too much time to get into trouble to one providing young people with a valuable structured program which focuses on community development, youth engagement and fun.

ABC2’s signature program, The World Changers, is for young people ages 10 – 24 of various academic levels, demographics, and living locations impacted by health disparities, and disproportionate systems of care & resources throughout North Carolina.

ABC2 is a 501c3 nonprofit and community organization which strives to provide unique and cultural opportunities to ensure young people have the necessary skills to be game changers in their communities and realizing their dreams are attainable and possible.  ABC2’s mission is to connect underserved and marginalized communities with resources to empower youth and advocate for community solutions and healthier lifestyles.
