Youth Development Practice
Hi. i would like to define a youth as someone within the age range of 16yrs to 35yrs
Well, that is good, you decide to define youth by age, its one way of looking at youth. But there are other ways of defining youth. I encourage you to explore these!
Tandeo2011, this is why am also saying that the youth must be defined by the critical stages of life because that is the stage that young adults or so to speak, are discovering themselves and their pathways, so, the age range of 15 - 24 must be our focus.

in my opinion, 35yrs is too old for the definition of a youth. i think a youth must be defined by the critical stages in human development which is 15 - 24 yrs old.
Since there is no unversall definition of youth, age is only uesed for development purposes, in terms of planning and resource allocation. In my view youth difer from one place to other. What is your view on this one?
