Students Explore Careers and College at GCC During Winter Break


Guam – Fifty middle and high school students are spending their Christmas break exploring college and career options, thanks to Guam Community College’s College Access Challenge Grant Program.

Thirty 11th and 12th graders are learning about college, how to apply to schools, and financial aid options, and 20 sixth  through tenth grade students are exploring careers in the caregiving and cosmetology fields. The two –week effort is CACGP’s first “winter bridge” program.

CACGP is a federally-funded program that helps channel middle and high school students toward college through activities, workshops, and career exploration.
