FUTURE ORIENTATION FOR YOUTH
The aim of the study was to reveal the reality of young people in our Arab-Palestinian society from different cities and villages from the north of the country and its center; The aim was to reveal the relationship between future orientation and mental vigilance, expectations, planning, future aspirations and opportunities among young people in Arab society and the predictability of a future-oriented trend as a dependent variable through independent demographic variables such as gender, class, economic status, educational attainment and religiosity; This study applied to a random sample of 684 students from the last primary (6th), middle school (8th and 9th) secondary (11th and 12th). The researcher relied on the descriptive analytical and correlative approach Methods and appropriate statistical methods through (spss) and reached a set of results; We noticed from the results that the evaluation of phrases in "socials and the presence of friends in their lives and their sense of safety and good health" was high, particularly the feeling of security and to be healthy where they received the highest grades, With regard to active thinking and future plans, they also received the highest scores, and the implementation of the plans was somewhat lower than the mere thinking of making plans. We also conclude that students are always thinking about their future and can see themselves in several options, but they did not actually seem to be formally planning their future, and what distinguishes this study is that it is unique in using the active thinking hub and making plans about The future as the focus of the study has not appeared in Arab studies, including foreign ones. Just as the future prospects for young people lie in their level of educational attainment, the higher their aspirations, expectations, plans for the future and vice versa; With regard to the variable of the class, we note that all students at different age stages are planning, expecting, looking forward and future opportunities, but older student has higher expectations, future prospects and plans for future stability, job, profession and academic progress, and this study was also unique by using the class variable where there is no previous study that touched on him.
