Purpose of the Site

The primary purpose of the Youthhood Web site is to help young adults plan for life after high school. The site aims to:

  1. Provide youth with tools to plan for their futures
    The site offers information, links, and interactive activities for youth to develop goals and plan for their futures. It is intended to be flexible such that it can work whether a youth is working on their own or with an adult.
  2. Provide youth a site where they can feel a sense of place
    The site speaks directly to youth about their plans for the future, using youth-friendly language, as well as youth-friendly graphics and artwork. Additionally, the site's "neighborhood" organization provides a concrete, familiar "place" for youth to begin the long process of self-identity and future planning. This community framework also creates an environment that encourages youth to feel part of a nationwide community of youth and to feel ownership and responsibility for their involvement in this community.
  3. Provide adults with tools to work directly with youth
    The site offers information, links, and interactive activities for adults who work directly with youth (including but not limited to teachers, youth workers, community leaders, parents, and other adult family members) to help youth plan for their futures. It can be used as a "stand-alone" curriculum or as a supplement to an established curriculum.
