“Getting paid experience through our summer youth employment program provides an opportunity for our island’s young people to be exposed to public service and the humble work of our government,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “I encourage all youth between the ages of 14 to 17 to consider applying and joining our team as we continue the work of building prosperity.”

“If you’re passionate about helping people, improving our island and the world in which we live, the government offers diverse pathways to commit fulfilling and focused service,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “Last year, our youth employees supported the opening of the Guam Relief Center, helped coordinate a government-wide beautification cleanup, and supported the planning of our Liberation memorial tributes, in addition to the everyday services that keep our island moving forward.”

In addition to the application, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) will be available online and at DYA’s Youth Resource Centers. For more information, call (671) 734-5187 or 735-5035/7.
