Knowing it's Important

Most of us want to be more independent some day. Just about every teen at The Youthhood has talked about moving out on their own and having their own place. But one thing we’ve learned is that making plans early is important so that you have more choices. If you wait until the last minute, you might have to settle for what is available rather than what you want.

Having a safe, comfortable, and convenient place to live makes lots of other things in life easier, like finding a good job, making friends, and getting involved in your community.

Understanding all of the other things that go into living independently is the key. Take a look at other topics you can explore at The Apartment and start making your own goals and plans!
