In-School Youth Winter Session Applications Now Being Accepted

The Guam Department of Labor (GDOL) is now accepting applications for the SY2023-24 Year-Round In-School Youth Program, which provides high school students with work readiness, occupational skills training, and summer employment within each school year. Each high school will have up to 15 slots to fill for the upcoming Winter Session.  

The In-School Youth Program Winter Session will include work readiness workshops that will prepare students for real-world employment skills such as resume writing, interview preparation, work ethics, communication skills, respecting peers and more. Eligible students must be enrolled in the 11th or 12th grade, between the ages of 14 to 21, and meet other criteria.

“We had a very successful Summer Session earlier this year with several of our private sector partners who were so impressed with our students that they hired them as permanent members of their team. The Winter and Spring Sessions prepare these students with the skills needed for the summer internship when they are partnered with an employer. This ensures the success of every intern as well as the employer,” said David Dell’Isola, GDOL Director.

The In-School Youth Winter Session is a paid occupational skills workshop and will be held from December 18 to 29, 2023. The deadline to apply is November 15, 2023.

Students must meet certain eligibility requirements. Interested students should speak to their school counselors to learn more about the program. The application can be found online at the following link:
