Abstract: This study will explore the adaptation and experiences of a group of young men formerly residing in care. It will seek to document their life trajectories since they left a residential setting and taken up independent living. This study will follow up a previous study by the author which had tackled the young men's expectations on leaving care. These young men will be revisited and the narrative of their lives since leaving care should throw light on how they have negotiated challenges such as employment, housing, family and leisure time among others. The focus shall be on both the risks experienced and the resiliency developed as a result of the negotiation of this major transition. The goal is to understand the life trajectories of these young men.
