Our Organizations

Young Adults at Risk

In recent years there has been growing awareness of the challenges faced by young adults at risk entering young adulthood.

Young adults at risk are defined as young people aged 18-30 who face ongoing challenges, deprivation and/or distress in one or more of the following areas of life: education, employment and skills; welfare and emotional well-being; housing, health and personal safety; social and family belonging.

The growing awareness of the vulnerabilities and challenges faced by young adults at risk as they transition into adulthood has led to the establishment of numerous NGOs aimed at assisting them to integrate successfully into the adult life.

For example, young adults who are:

Lacking family and/or social support networks

Lone soldiers

Graduates of out-of-home placements (foster care, group homes, etc.)

Formerly ultra-orthodox

From immigrant communities, social and geographic periphery
and/or economically disadvantaged families

From the Arab society
