Young Padawans in a lightsaber class
A Padawan is an Initiate in the Jedi order, undergoing training as an apprentice to a Jedi Knight or Master.

Young padawans with little training don't leave the Jedi Temple, but older padawans often accompany their masters on missions when their training is deemed sufficient for them to take care of themselves in the field.
