Hagåtña, Guam – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero held a swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday for 15 members of the Governor’s Youth Advisory Council who were surrounded by family and friends at the Government House in Agaña Heights. Established by Executive Order 2020-02, the council consists of student leaders from Guam’s high schools, colleges, and universities. 

“The future we are building for our children can only be brighter with young people at the table, so I am excited to work with my newest advisors and to hear their creative solutions on improving Guam for all,” said Governor Leon Guerrero. “In past years, this council has provided valuable input on health safety measures, advocated for higher teacher wages, and coordinated the Mo’na Manhoben Youth Summit. I look forward to supporting their continued leadership.”

“Last year, our youth advisors presented a plan that prioritized mental healthcare, heritage promotion, sustainability education, and better public transportation — areas that the Governor and our administration actively work to address,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “Generation Z has an important political perspective and a stronger connection to the global community than any generation in history. We are eager to gain their insight and to align with their visions.”
