Youthhood.org is a free Web-based resource for teens. It is a place for teens where all youth are welcome. Designed by staff at the National Center on Secondary Education and Transition, located at the University of Minnesota, it was created to help youth make the transition from childhood to adulthood. Aptly named rooms, such as The Hangout and The Community Center, help youth think about their future. This free resource contains one portal for students and another portal for adults. Most teens will use the site with an adult. This person is called the Youthhood Guide. Registration is not needed to visit places in the community; however, registration is needed to access personalized parts of the site such as the Life Map, a goal planning tool. To check it out, visit http://www.youthhood.org.
