40 years ago, Daly City Mayor Al Teglia had an idea: What if every youth in San Mateo County received the support they needed to succeed in their careers? From that idea came Jobs for Youth, a County of San Mateo program for people age 14-21.
This year, we are celebrating our 40th year of empowering youth to reach their full potential through higher education scholarships and we could not be more proud! The 40th JFY Al Teglia Scholar Shine Bright Celebration will be a memorable and impactful event as we honor our past, embrace our present, and look forward to a bright future. Thank you all for being a part of our journey and supporting our youth to go after their higher education dreams!
