    underaged vs youth

    i am writing the experience for one of the chicago essays
    anyhoo, when i was coordinating some services for a local fellowship, i set an age-limit so that some lazy punks won't be able to abuse the services
    basically, u get free rides to church as long as u r underaged (19below)

    should i say underaged or should i say youth/teenagers/etc?
    underaged sounds too weird when u r not talkin about drinking/driving/marriages

    i would definitely go with 'youth' or 'minor' as well. underaged has a negative connotation.
