They're both correct, though I prefer the first. However, is 'colleagues' really the word? Do they work together? ;-)

Thanks a lot.

Very often colleague implies profession or business. So it sounds a bit strange to say " colleagues in their teens " . Is that what you mean ???

Many thanks :)

I got nothing for "colleagues in their teens". I used Google, but you could try some other search engine.
