Youth is the time of life when one is young, and often means the time between childhood and adulthood (maturity, … whenever that might happen). It is also defined as the appearance, freshness, vigor, spirit, characteristic of one who is young.
It’s definitions of a specific age range varies, as Youth is not defined chronologically as a stage that can be tied to specific age ranges; nor can its end point be linked to specific activities, such as taking unpaid work or having sexual relations without consent.
For certain uses, such as employment statistics, the term refers to individuals from the ages of 14 to 21. The United Nations defines Youth as persons between the ages of 15 and 24.
A useful distinction within the UN itself can be made between teenagers (ages of 13 and 19) and young adults (ages of 18 and 32). In much of sub-Saharan Africa, the term Youth is associated with young men from 15 to 35 years.

Feeling younger than your actual age could be a combination of healthy lifestyle factors and a greater will to live.
This World demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the life of ease. Robert Kennedy
