Diversity and Mobility Set the Stage for Youth Involvement

Lakewood, Wash.

As a four-time winner of whole child partner America's Promise Alliance's 100 Best Communities for Young People recognition, Lakewood, Wash., has been a driving force in serving its youth population.

Diversity and mobility have set the stage for the city's ability to provide a multitude of youth-related services that range from mobile food programs, which ensure provisions to youth without transportation, to the Pierce County Bookmobiles that provide educational resources to youth who come from low-income or isolated areas. With more than 200 members of the Lakewood Community Collaboration continuing to address the needs of youth and the wealth of youth involvement in their community, Lakewood is a symbol for positive change.
