Guam - The new director of the Department of Youth Affairs is learning the ropes to ensure a smooth transition into the agency. Benny Pinaula says he is working to ensure the public that the agency is providing a safe environment for the youth.

He plans to make it a top-notch facility and prevent future escapes, telling KUAM News, "We want to make sure that we optimize all of them to their fullest potential.  I truly believe that everyone comes to work to win.  I want to use and take advantage of all the people here and their input to try to accomplish that mission."

Pinaula took the helm at DYA after resigning from the Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority last week.
