As individuals mature, their need to interact with the outside world increases. In the process they face a myriad of tasks to be accomplished with due success and commitment. Education, social relationships, family bonds, interpersonal contact, and careers are among the few expectations of young adults. The present study aims to assess the effects of orientation with regard to family and self among working youth and college students. The sample of 144 participants with college students (18-20) and working youth (21-23) were equally divided. The Youth Problem Inventory by Dr. (Mrs. ) M. Verma was used to gather the research data. The mean differences did not indicate any significant differences on both groups (college students or working adults) and no significant differences on gender. The qualitative analysis through participant interaction and feedback, however, did indicate that working youth faced more challenges with regard to their self and family. Females were observed to be more oriented towards family as compared to males.
