Connect Extension's tag line, a hub for learning, professional development, and collaboration captures the ideas behind an outward focusing posture and the many ways the University of Guam embraces university and community engagement. The power behind Connect Extension's many learning structures creates a culture of innovation across U.S. Cooperative Extension's knowledge and outreach infrastructure.Connect Extension's IMPACT Collaborative program serves as one timely example of an outward focusing mindset that extends beyond the campus setting and engages potential partners to earn and participate in professional development, learning, and collaboration opportunities. The GCE&O as eXtension members organized a Guam team-Green Economies-Grow Guam Green to participate in the one-on-one coaching by the Impact Collaborative network of Innovation Facilitators, Key Informants. The Guam Impact Collaborative team composition represents a multi-institutional teaming and includes representatives from the UOG-GCE&O, Guam Department of Labor, and the Governor's Office. The Guam team participated in the January and February 2021 Innovation Skill-Building Experience (ISBE) sessions. The Guam team looks forward to the skill-building experience and learning the latest tools for program development and planning. The Guam team's next steps are participating in the Impact Collaborative Project accelerator session, refining specific projects and programs that impact our island community.
