Solano County - One of the 100 Best Communities for Young People
Solano County is a winner of a national competition to identify the 100 Best Communities for Young People. The 100 Best competition honors communities across America for their commitment to provide healthy, safe and caring environments for young people. More than 1,000 communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands took part in the competition.
Solano County is one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People because of the caring community and collaboration among schools, cities, businesses and county agencies to support our children and youth. The Solano County Office of Education submitted the application after assembling a team of educators, county agencies, such as Children’s Network and Health and Social Services, community members and students working in partnership to raise awareness of the resources, programs, training and opportunities available to our county’s youth as well as the physical, civic and education needs of these children. With all entities working together, Solano County has a strong network to help families access services for the health, safety and well-being of the county’s children.
“Nothing is more important than seeing that our children and youth have the resources and support systems they need to thrive and succeed,” said America’s Promise Founding Chairman General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.). “When a community provides all that its young people need to be healthy and secure, they deserve to be honored and showcased as an outstanding example of what it takes to successfully nurture this nation’s young people.”
