A new program in Albany County hopes to mentor juvenile offenders, and get them back on the right track.

Berkshire Farm Center, along with the Chris Wilson Foundation, will be implementing the new program at the Albany County Juvenile Detention Center.

Chris Wilson developed his master plan after he was convicted of a crime in his late teens. That’s when he decided to turn his life around – and make a difference in the lives of others.

The new program trains local mentors on the master plan, a 12-unit program designed to strengthen the life skills for incarcerated youth after serving time.
