This chapter begins by noting the difference between the ascribed and achieve statuses of adulthood. It then explores the inextricable connection of particular opportunity pathways, such as education and employment to adulthood preparation. Civic responsibilities are given careful consideration and are viewed as being of great import in adulthood preparation. In this regard, the limitations of poverty stricken communities are examined.
