JDC Life Skills Youth Program
The Chamber, in partnership with the Superior Court of Guam’s Juvenile Drug Court, developed a program of basic skills workshops designed for youth participants. The courses are grouped into four categories: Work or Job Oriented Skills, Life Skill or Personal Interest, Self-Esteem and Goal Oriented Skills, and Sports & Health Development Oriented Skills. The categories are further broken down into specific topics, which are focused and short in duration such that success can be readily achieved. Life skills activities offer necessary skills to encourage self-reliance, access to resources, and engagement into the community. Courses are conducted by the owners and top managers of the more than 300 companies that are members of the Guam Chamber of Commerce.
