It can be a challenge to grow up in today’s world. There are so many distractions and temptations that youth often find themselves struggling with. In this blog post, we will explore the challenges of youth transition from college into adulthood.

Change is difficult, uncertain, and frequently lonely. However, new things require change. We can’t enjoy the innovative, exciting facts of life transition until we experience a change.


Youth VS Adulthood: The Differences

There are many differences between youth and adulthood. These can include:


Living Situation

Youth are often living with their parents. However, once they turn 18, they must find a way to support themselves. This could mean moving out or staying with their parents.


Working Situation

Youth may only have one job and not a career path. In adulthood, it is common to have multiple jobs throughout your life to support yourself financially.



Adults make more money than youth. Adults are able to hold higher positions and make more money.


Social Situation

Youth are working towards their future. Youth’s main focus is on school and building relationships. Adult life revolves around family, finances, careers.


Transitioning Into Adulthood: Challenges And Opportunities

As youth move from high school graduation towards adulthood, there are many challenges and opportunities. Here are some things youth should look forward to when transitioning from youth into adulthood:




Maturity And Growth

Adulthood is the perfect opportunity for youth to grow in character, maturity, responsibility, and discipline. They can make a career out of their passions through hard work and dedication.


Leadership And Service

Youth can find themselves in leadership positions. They have the opportunity to be influencers and mentors within their youth group, school, career path. Through these opportunities, youth’s faith will grow stronger as they put it into practice through service to others.




Financial Security

Youth are not as financially secure as adults. They must learn how to budget and save money in order to support themselves throughout their life.


Stress And Pressure

Adulthood brings stress, and youth often don’t know how to manage this pressure. Learning how to manage this pressure and know when to take a break from life is key.


Relationships And Marriage

Youth are still getting used to being alone. Once they enter adulthood, youth will face the challenge of dealing with relationships and marriage.
