Molodyozhnaya (Russian: Молодёжная) is a Moscow Metro station in the Kuntsevo District, Western Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line, between Krylatskoye and Kuntsevskaya stations. Molodyozhnaya was opened in 1965 as a part of the Filyovskaya Line. On 7 January 2008 the station was detached from the line on which it had been for 42 years.

The station was designed by architect Robert Pogrebnoy. It has the standard pillar-trispan design. The pillars are white marble with bands of pink marble at the top and bottom. The walls are tiled.
