Defining Youth

Jump to: navigation, search

Youth can be defined by age due to the following:

  1. Age as a determinant for defining youth is to serve as a standard measurement for uniformity for a country or a group's operations.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
