Inspire, empower, and mentor local youth so they can achieve their goals in life.

We value one-on-one connections between community members and our youth.

The mentoring arm of The Youth Development Center is 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.  

Our 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.
