The purpose of this study is to get increased knowledge of young people and their experience and thoughts about existential questions, and if the adults in Junior highschool take them into consideration. Our purpose to look at the result in a gender perspective was also a part of this work. Our starting point is the theory of youth, their existential questions and the importance of their identity-work in the late modern society. We interviewed six youth at the age of 15-16. We used hermeneutic theory to analyse the text. The result indicates that the common existential everyday questions among the youth where; Friends, family, future, love and grades. Girls existential questions included relations and the boys questions was more about future-projects. The study also indicates the schools lack of interest in youth identity-work and theirs existential questions.
