What is the age range for the youth targeted in the strategy?
Palestinian youth aged 14-35.
This is a wide age range compared to other age definitions of youth. The reason for the wide age range is for the strategy to be inclusive. It starts from 14 years because this is the age of the end of mandatory education. It ranges up to 35 years because our research has shown that Palestinian youth between 25-35 are having similar challenges as younger youth.
At the same time, the wide age range also means that the youth face different kinds of challenges. In different parts of the strategy, the youth are thus divided into the following sub groups: 14-19, 20-24, 25-35 years.
