100 Best Communities for Young People

100 Best Communities for Young People

The 2008 100 Best Communities for Young People have been announced, and the winners include cities, towns, and counties from thirty-seven states. Now in its third year, the list — which is sponsored by America's Promise Alliance in partnership with Capital One — recognizes communities that find unique and effective ways to ensure that their young people receive the resources necessary to stay in school and succeed. Forty-four of this year's top one hundred communities are three-time winners, including Sylacauga, Alabama; Manatee County, Florida; Cambridge, Massachusetts; Sugar Land, Texas; and Spokane County, Washington.
