There is no difference in meaning between your two example sentences.
In fact a shortened form of

you all

is part of the southern regional accent in the US

ya'll

Ya'll hurry back!
All of you come back soon!

We are all teenagers.

We all are teenagers.

All of us are teenagers.

The sentences are all grammatical; there's no difference in meaning.

The "are" is a be verb. . When "all" refers to the subject of a clause, we usually put it after the be verb. So the first sentence is more idiomatic and common.
