2022 Scholar Celebration

In 1982, 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.

In 2022, we are celebrating our 40th year of empowering youth to reach their full potential through higher education scholarships and we could not be prouder. Improving access to higher education is an equity project of considerable importance and increasing urgency. In using an equity lens as the driving force to our mission, we envision a community in which every youth feels empowered to take charge of their career and economic future.

We hope you will join us in inspiring a future of equity & inclusion in higher education and attend our Shine Bright Celebration on May 19, 2022!
