Transition to adulthood is a continuous process grounded in the daily choices youth make regarding the focusing of their energies across the multiple social contexts of family, peers, school, work or romance. This current examines future family-related plans adolescents might have on the verge of exiting high school and its relation to their self-confidence, family, peer group and teacher support. An online survey was administrated to 3524 XIIth graders. Results suggest that adolescents with high levels of support from their peers are more likely to plan moving with the partner, getting married or having a child in the near future. The level of family support is related to the likelihood of plan moving with the partner or getting married, while self confidence is a significant discriminant for having a child. These preliminary findings suggest that there are areas of concern that should be addressed through programs to prepare youth for specific adult transitions and roles. Follow up and longitudinal studies are suggested.
