Public Policy Institute trains leaders of tomorrow

INTERNSHIP: Ten interns graduated from the 2019 summer cohort of the Public Policy Institute on Aug. 13 in the Guam Congress Building in Hagåtña. The interns gained hands-on experience in policymaking as they worked in the offices of senators in the 35th Guam Legislature. Each intern had the opportunity to visit government agencies, conduct research, present on issues, attend workshops, and participate in community service activities. The cohort of 10 went through a rigorous application process to ensure that the coveted spots in such a prestigious internship were given to those who have potential to be the island’s leaders of tomorrow.
