The Youth Development Center has a new mentoring arm, known as Baker’s Anchor Mentoring or BAM. This name, derived from the founder of the YDC, Tom Baker, compliments his vision of the well-being and development of area youth.

The mentoring program offers flexibility and resources to increase the number of local youth who can be matched with a mentor.

Baker’s Anchor Mentoring provides a sense of stability, trust, and a safe place for youth ages, 6-13 in Winchester City, Frederick & Clarke Counties.


Positive youth-mentor relationships supported and sustained through BAM have a lasting effect on the lives of area young people.


BAM's focus is to inspire, empower, and mentor local youth so they can achieve their goals in life.


BAM values one-on-one connections between community members and our youth.
