The transition between child and adult.

The transition between child and adult.

Physical and emotional challenges during this stage in life can be both exciting and tumultuous.

Expectations and social relationships assume great significance in the journey to become independent.

For some, this youth period can be a difficult time where an outside lens can be helpful.

“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt
