    Default where or when

    A MENTORING program is giving life-changing opportunities to Banbury youth.
    Young Inspirations was founded two years ago to provide mentoring sessions for students and unemployed young adults aged 11 to 21.
    Alex Goldberg, the program's founder, said; "We set up Young Inspirations because we wanted to give young people experiences which will potentially be life changing and broaden their outlook.
    "We try to create work experience opportunities that will really make a difference to our youth. For example, we've secured internships with world-famous firms such as Honda.
    "At a time of funding cutbacks where schools are finding it more and more difficult to offer this kind of mentoring, it is extremely important that these opportunities are available both to help youth with their school work and grades.

    Why is the underlined "where" used here? In this context, isn't "when" a better choice?

    Am I right?

    Thanks!

    Since it refers to time, "when" would be better.
