Building a Bridge to Success

Empowering at-risk students to make life choices that positively impact their future.

Who We Are

The Second Chance Initiative is a non-profit statement of purpose writing service organization that helps at-risk youths throughout Hidalgo County by allowing them to participate in extracurricular activities that have been denied to them due to violations of UIL policy.

We work with these young people to give them the hope they need for a better future.

Mission and Values

We aim to reduce the number of high school dropouts and guide students toward graduation and post-secondary education. Our students become entrepreneurs focused on human capital.
