  • senior and older are adjectives. "Seniors" (AmE) or "senior citizens" (AmE) and "the elderly" (pl) are the nouns. – grateful Jul 22 '16 at 10:34

One of the definitions of youth is


  1. young persons collectively.

source: Dictionary.com

You can also use young as a noun:

young, n.

those who have youth; young persons collectively: the educated young of today; a game for young and old.

And finally (if the people you want to talk about can be put into these categories) you can also use: children, adolescents, or young adults
