Adonis is currently the Director for the Department of Youth Affairs and is proud to say that he's accomplished much in the last year he's been there. From participation in the Guam Juvenile Justice Law Review Commission, to the completed renovation of the Echo Dorm (adds 28 client holding cells), to the implementation of the Community Reintegration Program and soon to launched Career Technical Education (providing construction trades, culinary and computer networking training) partnership with GCC for the rehabilitation of children at DYA.  

He couldn't have done this of course without the awesomely skilled, experienced and supportive staff. Together he has worked with the Calvo/Tenorio administration, other department and agency Directors, members of the current legislature, local and federal judiciary to help solve the issues that affect children, youth, and families.
