This is a person's first stage in their Jedi training. Jedi Hopefuls are very young children taken to the Jedi Temple to be trained under JediMasters such as Yoda. These JediHopeful will usually be trained in a group of pupils and will live at the Jedi Temple. Becausethey are taken at such young ages, most have never known their true parents; thus theyhave few problems copingwith the "strange" environment of the Jedi Temple. Jedi Hopefuls remain training at the Jedi Temple until they are chosen to be a Padawan learner by either a JediKnight or Master. If by a certain age a JediHopeful has not been selected to become a Padawan, they will be sent to work in community service of the Galactic Republic. Depending on their skills, they may be supervised to ensure that they do not cause trouble through their Jedi knowledge.
