Abstract: The contemporary youth generation is an age band which is striving in a late modern society. Late modernity, as a concept, is characterised by the ‘reconfiguration of modernity’s institutions and its social, cultural and political forms through processes associated with globalization, detraditionalization and individualisation’ (Heaphy, 2007: 69). Historically, the term Modernity has evolved due to social changes happening in Europe from the seventeenth century onwards (Giddens, 1990). Ultimately, such social changes were rippled across the world; establishing new socio-cultural and economic shifts (Hall, Held and McLennan, 1992).
