Guam - This past weekend, over 100 of the island's youth participated in the Rotaract Club of the Marianas' first Rotaract Youth Leadership Conference at the Lotte Hotel Guam. The conference was in partnership with the PEACE Organization and focused on youth empowerment, team building and leadership along with discussion on tobacco and alcohol prevention.

Rotaract vice president Russell Ocampo explained, saying, "The ultimate goal is to have these different groups of students from different schools collaborate and hopefully work on a service project here locally to bridge the gap between the different cliques of schools and do great things in the community and work together to accomplish these goals."

The mission of the Rotaract Club is service above self and consists of college students and young professionals between the ages of 18 to 30.
