100 Best Communities Award
100 best communities seal
Fontana has been recognized as one of the nation’s 100 best communities for young people for the second year in a row by America’s Promise Alliance.

"The City of Fontana is proud to be chosen,” said Mayor Frank Scialdone. “Being chosen in two consecutive nationwide competitions for this prestigious honor is a testament to our community's commitment to young people.”

America’s Promise Alliance, founded by General Colin Powell in 1997, is a partnership of corporations, nonprofits, faith-based organizations and advocacy groups that are dedicated to improving the lives of youth and children. The Alliance recognizes those communities that make youth a priority by implementing programs to help keep children in school and prepare them for college and the 21st century workforce.
“Fontana serves as an example to inspire and educate other communities across the nation to tackle the challenges facing their city and children.” said Marguerite W. Kondracke, America’s Promise Alliance president and CEO.

Fontana is one of the “100 Best” because of its dedication to giving its young people the resources and services needed to lead dynamic and fulfilling lives. 

It is because of efficient and productive partnerships between city government, schools, community leaders and organizations that Fontana’s young people have access to programs focused on providing leadership skills, healthy activities and job training.

On September 21, 2010, Fontana was recognized at a ceremony in front of the Washington Monument on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.  In addition to the “100 Best” distinction, Fontana will receive two road signs identifying the city as one of the “100 Best,” as well as a trophy to be presented to local officials later this year.

The entire 2010 list of 100 Best Communities for Young People and their accomplishments is at www.americaspromise.org/100Best.  The full press release announcing the award is also available in the City’s press release archives.
