Kellan Lutz was looking stylish as usual when arriving in Washington, D.C., to help commemorate the 100 Best Communities for Young People.
The organization recognizes and celebrates community-wide efforts to improve the well-being of youth and end the nation’s dropout crisis.
“Each community has proven that they are developing programs and implementing initiatives to provide young people with the essential resources they need to graduate from high school and succeed in college and a 21st century career,”
said Alma J. Powell, Chair, America’s Promise Alliance.
First held in 2005, the 100 Best competition is open to all communities that make children and youth a priority, including small towns, large cities, counties and school districts. In addition to enhancing local educational opportunities, most winning communities help facilitate greater access to quality health care for young people, encourage youth civic engagement and supply developmental resources that create better places for young people to live and grow.
