Jedi Initiate referred to a Force-sensitive child undergoing the early stages of Jedi training - also known informally as a 'Youngling'. Typically, Jedi Initiate was used to describe those Jedi-in-training who were yet to become Padawans.

In the New Jedi Order, however, Jedi Initiates come in all ages, as Luke Skywalker accepts both adults and adolescents as well as younglings into his teachings. This can often cause a gray area when referring to a Jedi Initiate versus a Youngling, and is why Force Sensitive children are often referred to as Youngling.
