There is no common definition of youth (Jugendbegriff) in Austria. Some youth protection laws (Jugendschutzgesetze) define the age range for youth from 14-18 years. The main target group of the Austrian Youth Strategy (Österreichische Jugendstrategie) is the group of 14 to 24 year olds. Several youth related laws and strategies explicitly define age ranges they are applying to. The regulation on the assessment of impacts on young people (Verordnung über die Abschätzung der Auswirkungen auf junge Menschen) of regulatory and other projects defines 'children' as people who have not yet reached the age of 18 and 'young adults' as all people who have reached the age of eighteen but not 30. This definition of young adults is also upheld in the Federal Youth Representation Act (Bundes-Jugendvertretungsgesetz) and the Federal Youth Promotion Act (Bundes-Jugendförderungsgesetz).
