They are warriors for justice, for their communities, for the Earth. They believe in using their talents and skills to improve not only their own lives, but those of the people around them. They transform the world by standing in their own light.
They are the 2020 Jobs for Youth Al Teglia Scholars, and they are ready to build a better tomorrow.
While our Scholars always impress with their accomplishments and goals, this year’s group is special. Many will transition from high school to college amidst the unique challenges brought on by a global pandemic. They are navigating a tomorrow full of global and local social justice needs. They will begin their careers in workplaces characterized by change. But if the past is any predictor of the future, we know, just by looking at our Scholars’ stories, that they will rise to any challenge life throws their way.
We hope you’ll join us in getting to know our future leaders by reading the bios below, and we hope you feel as inspired as we do. Our Scholars show us what it means to find success through authenticity—they truly know how to “Be Bold. Be Brave. Be You.”
