“As we work on recovering from the pandemic, the young people of Guam are assuming a critical role in the foundation of our prosperity, with this program serving as their springboards into public service,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “We encourage youth interested in education, tourism, and other areas of government to apply today and join us in rewarding public service while earning compensation.”
