100 Best Communities for Young People

The 100 Best Communities for Young People initiative brought significant attention to the central role communities play in preparing all young people for success. Between 2006 and 2012, America's Promise and corporate sponsors celebrated more than 200 deserving comminities that effectively provided their youth with the Five Promises and worked to increase high school graduation rates. While America's Promise will not be naming additional 100 Best Communities, the GradNation Community Summits are now advancing some of its key ideas, especially the reality that change happens locally.
