Juventus-She was the tutelar or guardian goddess of young men and particularly worshipped during the period when they approached manhood when they assumed the privileges and responsibilities of a young man.

The Romans associated Juventus with the ceremonies and rites of passage of young men as they approached manhood at the age of seventeen years old. The most famous ritual related to the assumption of the toga virilis. The first wearing of the toga virilis was part of the celebrations on reaching maturity. According to Roman Law only male Roman citizens were allowed to wear the toga virilis upon reaching the age of political majority (seventeen). Wealthy, noble young men who were the sons of senators were allowed to wear a toga bordered with purple, called the toga praetexta from the age of fourteen until they were seventeen years of age. At the age of 17 all male Roman citizens wore the pure white toga virilis.

Some accounts Juventus was a Roman male god. Some accounts Juventus was Roman female goddess associated with Greek goddess Hebe who serve the Greek gods and goddess Ambrosia which would give them eternal beauty and life.

The goddess Juventas was first honored in Rome with a chapel on the Capitoline Hill.

A lectisternium was first prepared for Juventas. A lectisternium was a ritual in which a meal was offered to appease gods and goddesses whose images were laid on a couch placed in the street. During the lectisternium in honor of Juventas a public Thanksgiving was made to Hercules, an association which shows the influence of the Greek goddesss Hebe, the wife of Heracles and Roman counterpart of Juventas.

A festival was dedicated to Juventas, as the personification of the emperor, by Caligula. The Dies Juvenalis, the Juvenalia, celebrated a day for the young on December 22 which was added to the festival of Saturnalia

Boys offered a coin to her when they wore a man's toga for the first time. The temple of Juventas on the Capitol was more ancient than that of Jupiter. She also had a second temple in the Circus Maximus.

Juventas was a Roman goddess who protected youth or men of military age.
