Welcome to The Apartment!
The Apartment is about becoming independent. It’s about you and how independent you want to be as you move toward adulthood. The Apartment is about where you want to live someday and what kinds of things you have to learn to be independent.
- Taking control of your future.
- Knowing that your future will be positive because you’re in charge of it.
(from Passages: A Journal for Growing Home)
Being independent is one of the biggest topics of conversation at The Youthhood. In most states, when you turn 18, you legally become an adult. For a lot of us that’s the magical age. We dream of turning 18 and then being independent. Well, we’ve figured out that it doesn’t really work that way. Becoming independent requires a lot of work and thinking about a lot of different things that you will have to make decisions about in order to be successful.
