America's 100 Best Communities for Young People



At a ceremony today in Washington DC, America's Promise Alliance honored 100 communities for "extraordinary community-wide efforts to improve the well-being of youth and end the nation’s dropout crisis."  

In a column on CNN.com, founding chairpersons Alma & Colin Powell explain why the examples set by these communities are important, and what you can do to get involved.

To see if your community is on the list, visit AmericasPromise.org. If your community isn't on the list, send your leaders the link and ask why not.
