Thank you for your generous support of our Jobs for Youth Scholars
We are incredibly proud to introduce our 2019 Jobs for Youth Al Teglia Scholars, a group of inspiring individuals marked by achievement in the face of adversity, commitment to their community, and continuous learning and growth.
Each Scholar faced a unique set of daunting obstacles on their path to open the doors of opportunity, from financial hardship and unstable homes to disabilities and discrimination. But they are each here today because they refused to be defined by disadvantage, refused to rest in their prescribed circumstance, and most of all refused to relinquish their inalienable right to have a dream of a brighter tomorrow.
The following biographies are just snippets of our winners’ triumphs and challenges, and just the start of what we are sure will be incredible life stories as they pursue higher education and beyond.
