We are exploring different opportunities to contribute to our San Mateo County community and invite you to be part of this important conversation to help us amplify the voices and needs of our marginalized youth. In 2021, we came together to raise funds to fully sponsor one $1500 Jobs for Youth Al Teglia Scholarship. In 2022, we came together to fully one $2000 Jobs for Youth Al Teglia Scholarship. Our 2022-23 goal is to raise $2000 to fully sponsor another Jobs for Youth Al Teglia Scholar and empower them paint their own path!
