Guam - Students from various high schools got to know each other during an icebreaker exercise at the Guam Community College's College Access Challenge Grant Program High School Professional Development Day today at the Mangilao campus. The workshop gave 73 students information about going to college, how to afford it, teamwork, managing stress and other topics.

Program coordinator Millie Lujan Afaisen says this event allows students to also create bonds and make new friends. She told KUAM News, "It's important because we want them to empower our youth and we want them to learn that it's important for them to be themselves and be confident on what they can do and what they can bring to the community. And hopefully we can teach them how to prepare for the daily life situations and they are the next generation of leaders, so we want them to do their best and succeed."

The program received $1.5 million this year to reach out to middle and high school students in order to get more of them prepared for postsecondary education.
