The Youthhood is a dynamic Web site young adults can use to plan for life after high school. It’s unique because it’s:

  • Curriculum and research based
  • Interactive and personalized
  • Directed to young adults
  • Flexible and useful in any setting
  • Fun
  • Free

Although the site addresses youth directly, it is intended to be used as a curriculum within a classroom, community program, or in any setting where adults are working with youth to set goals and plan for the future. The Youthhood includes informational content, interactive activities, and a wealth of other opportunities for youth to connect what's important to them to their learning experiences.

It's Free!

The Youthhood Web site is free to use in any setting. Youthhood was originally funded by the Office of Special Education Programs at the U.S. Department of Education through a grant awarded to the National Center on Secondary Education and Transition (NCSET). As part of NCSET's sponsored grant activities, Youthhood is provided at no charge as a resource and transition planning tool for teachers, community service providers, mentors, parents, guardians, youth with and without disabilities, and anyone else who may benefit from utilizing this site to plan for the transition from high school to adult life.

The only requirement to utilize all interactive features of Youthhood is that your students register with the site.
