Albert M. Teglia, the son of Italian immigrants, was the first of his family to be born in the United States. He was born in Colma, California in 1931. Al graduated from Jefferson High School and attended the College of San Mateo earning his degree in horticulture.
Al, was affectionately known as “Mr. Daly City “. He was a very strong advocate for the San Mateo County Human Services Agency focusing his life and passion on helping the children and families of his beloved county.

In honor of Al’s dedication to the Jobs for Youth program, the Al Teglia Scholarship fund was created to help provide higher education opportunities for the youth of San Mateo County. This fund continues to create college and vocational scholarships for students who are recognized by the Jobs for Youth Workgroup.
