HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS RESEARCH SUMMARY:

In this article, the authors review the theoretical and empirical youth development literature and offer a framework of eight core dimensions of successful young adulthood (defined roughly as 18-25). They also discuss developmental relationships and opportunities that young people need during adolescence in order to ensure ongoing wellbeing and a successful transition to young adulthood.

The purpose of the article is to a) contribute to the description of and consensus on the dimensions of successful young adult development, and b) establish the groundwork in order for future research to validate the dimensions and associated indicators.
