Youth is the time of life between childhood and adulthood. Definitions of the specific age range that constitutes youth vary. According to the United Nations General Assembly, "Youth are those persons between the ages of 15 and 24 years". An individual's actual maturity may not correspond to their chronological age, as immature individuals could exist at all ages.
Around the world, the terms "youth", "adolescent", "teenager", "kid", and "young person" are interchanged, often meaning the same thing, occasionally differentiated. Youth generally refers to a time of life that is neither childhood nor adulthood, but rather somewhere in-between. Youth is an alternative word to the scientifically-oriented adolescent and the common terms of teen and teenager. Another common title for youth is young person or young people.
