These audiences are children and youth that are under the age of 18. If your program plans to serve or interact with these audiences, please follow the link for youth audiences.

Please keep in mind that the number of individuals being served should not be incorporated into your program's classification. It is possible for a program to serve both youth and adult audiences. If your program serves any youth, regardless of the number of adults served, please follow the link for youth audiences.
