Guam - Thanks to the Citi Foundation and their donation of $20,000, 20 high school students were able to spend the summer participating in the Post-Secondary Education Accessibility Initiative Program. Guam Community College President Mary Okada says the program gives students the opportunity to take courses during the summer to prepare them for college.
She told KUAM News, "In addition to workshops that are offered by the college by representatives from the community and from Citi Foundation, like financial courses, so they understand the full aspect of not only going to college but some of the life skills associated with being employed."
This is the fourth year that the Citi Foundation has partnered with GCC to make the Summer Bridge Program possible. Today the students were recognized for completing the program.
