    subject or object

    " 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."

    Question:

    Should I call the "students and unemployed young adults" the subjects of the program or the objects of the program?


    Thanks!

    Jason

    "participants". Neither of your words seem right.

    Thanks for your reply!

    So next time I will use "participants" to express the meaning of "people whom a certain program is intended for". Is it right?

    Yes, but only if the people are going to participate in it.
