Adams’ Development Center 2 Adams’ Development Center A matter of trust: Mentoring is a structured and trusting relationship that brings young people together with caring individuals who offer guidance, support and encouragement aimed at developing the competence and character of the mentee. A mentor is an adult who, along with parents, provides a young person with support, counsel, friendship, reinforcement and constructive example.

If the child has not gotten the message during all that time he would be sent to a youth detention center by the courts and no longer allowed to the program.
