Fragment of a discussion from Talk:Ipyet/Introduction to Youth Development Practice
Youth can be defined by age due to the following:
- Age as a determinant for defining youth is to serve as a standard measurement for uniformity for a country or a group's operations.
- People of this group (transitional-youth) exhibit similar characteristics in terms of physiological, psychological and performance that can be directly linked to their ages or what others in their age group can do.
- The youth are mostly young people about to go through (experience) what adults have gone through, such as work, raising a family, skills, values and mindset.
