Abstract

This study examined the effects of youth group involvement, youth group support and extraversion on loneliness in high school seniors across the transition into college. It was hypothesized that the greater the reported level of youth group support, youth group involvement, and extraversion, the lower the reported loneliness across the college transition. In both correlational and regression analyses, youth group support was significantly and negatively associated with loneliness for all 3 waves of data collected, while participants' level of activity involvement in youth group was not associated with loneliness as predicted. Consistent with other studies, extraversion was also negatively correlated with loneliness at waves 1 and 2, though not at wave 3.
