Being a young adult—a person of the age 18-30 years old—brings with it many opportunities and many stressors. It is a time of exploration and challenge to figure out who you “are” and what you want for your life: an education, meaningful work, love, friendship, and a place to live. Maybe have some fun in there, too.
In New Hampshire, that can all feel HARD! It feels hard for a lot of young adults not only in New Hampshire, but around the world. You’re not alone – others feel this struggle too. You don’t have to figure this out by yourself. Even though it feels hard – you’ve got this and we’ve got your back.
We asked – you answered. In 2015 and 2019, through surveys, interviews and focus groups, we asked you what it is like to be a young adult in NH and what you need to thrive. You told us. And NH is responding. State, local, non profit and community organizations have opportunities and resources to offer to support you in achieving your goals. From taking care of your physical and mental health to buying your first home, you have support.
In each region of the state, there is a Young Adult Strategies Coordinator to:
- Listen to young adults in their region to understand their needs and
- Implement strategies to address those needs.
Each has a different approach but they all offer ways to get involved, get connected, be healthy, and make a difference.
