Humanities Guåhan is an independent non-profit organization that
presents and supports public humanities programs and projects for the people of Guam.



We are pleased to announce the opening of the 2022 Community Grant Cycle! Working in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities, we provide financial support up to $10,000 in matching funds to nonprofit organizations, institutions and ad-hoc groups for humanities programs aimed at public audiences.


Our latest project, Reimagining Guåhan: Social Justice through a Humanities Lens, follows the civic reflection model to engage in humanities-based discussions with our richly diverse community about the meaning of equality and democracy by exploring a range of important social justice issues to reimagine a Guåhan that is more just, inclusive, and sustainable.




Our outdoor youth initiative Taking Root: Growing Youth Empowerment for Island Sustainability returns on June 20, 2022! Taking Root promotes physical activity, civic engagement, and greater cultural and ecological awareness while encouraging diverse islander youth to share their knowledge and work collaboratively on problems caused by cultural and environmental change.
