No. United Way expects that youth being served by affiliate/venture agencies are, by nature of the work, at risk and have been exposed to maladaptive situations and behaviors. Therefore, only youth that have been personally affected or court involved should be included. United Way does not expect a large number of agencies to fall into this category.
