Milford's Promise is a collaborative network that builds upon the collective power of communities and partners to help fulfill the FIVE PROMISES for every young person in America.
America's Promise Alliance launched the GradNation campaign in 2010, building on 105 dropout prevention summits, convened across the country to raise awareness and inspire action. GradNation is now a large and growing movement of dedicated individuals, organizations and communities working together to end America's dropout crisis.

100 Best Communities in America Award
Milford's Promise was the catalyst in completing and submitting the 100 Best application to Washington, D.C. for four consecutive years. The application process involved interviewing all youth servicing agencies in the community including the school system and compiling all of the wonderful ways Milford is committed to youth.
Each year over 2000 applications are submitted from communities across America explaining how they are committed to the 5 Promises and why they feel they should be named one of the "100 Best Communities in America for Young People". Milford was entered into a Hall of Fame where we assist other communities with their application. This honor was bestowed on the entire City of Milford and this seal can be used until the end of 2015 by all youth servicing agencies in the community.
Please feel free to contact, to learn how you can add this seal to your website or printed material.
