Guam - The Department of Youth Affairs released data on its admissions from 2006 to 2011. The top five villages for 2011 include Dededo, Yigo, Mangilao, Barrigada and Tamuning. The top school was George Washington High School, with 98 incarcerated teens admitted in 2011.

According to director Adonis Mendiola, the most common offense was cutting class, saying, "I know a lot of our attention gets drawn to demographics, gets drawn to who the top villages are and what their offenses are, but as a whole, we are one society. There are issues with our FSM population, which is not news to any of us, and we'd like to say as your partners, we have made contact we have bridged partnerships with organizations like the Chuukese Catholic Faith Association, who have come and visited us."

Mendiola adds that the faith associations are working with DYA to administer to DUA clients and provide them a home away from home.
