“Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio and I invite our eligible teens to participate in the Governor’s Summer Youth Employment Program. This initiative offers a valuable opportunity for our youth to acquire essential skills and professional experience. Summer jobs not only provide financial independence but also instill responsibility, teamwork, and time management skills crucial for their future success,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Join us as we invest in the development of our future workforce.”
For the last three years, GSYEP participants were assigned exclusively to the Government of Guam. This year, students can explore the childcare workforce in Guam’s private sector, specifically the daycare facilities. The update to the program was made possible through funding provided by the Department of Public Health and Social Services’ (DPHSS) Child Care and Development Fund Program. Additional documentation is required for employment at daycare facilities. Any fees associated with obtaining the additional documents will be waived. Applicants interested in working in child care must submit the following prior to the start of the program:
  1. Police Clearance Authorization Form
  2. Court Clearance Authorization Form
  3. A completed DPHSS Health Certificate application
  4. Bureau of Child Care Services (BCCS) Consent for Disclosure of Client Information form
Forms will be provided on DYA’s website.
