Youth transitions refer to young people's journeys from school to post-school study and on to employment. This is a time when young people experience rapid biological, psychological and physical changes, as well as changing social and economic situations, as they begin to take on the responsibilities of adulthood. In this paper, the authors first define a "successful youth transition". They then consider a range of factors that affect transitions. Following this, they discuss a number of interventions which can help young people to make the transition successfully. (Contains 1 table and 2 footnotes.)
