As many Seniors begin to turn eighteen, they take on the responsibilities of the adult world; not only social responsibilities but legal ones as well. The Ohio Bar Association hosts a programme called “Now You’re 18,” which allows “new adults [to] learn about their changing legal status.”
Many Bellbrook Seniors feel they lack the education that would prepare them for the adult world. A senior said, “I wish Bellbrook would take the time to teach us more about the new responsibilities we gain turning eighteen.”
If you’re interested in learning about an adult’s legal obligations, the OBA publishes a summary for their program, which you can find here.
