Are you a youth between the ages of 14-21 and live in San Mateo County? Join our free program to access scholarship and employment opportunities.


Jobs for Youth serves San Mateo County youth who are between the ages of 14-21 with employment services. Services do not have specific eligibility or income requirements and are available to serve all youth regardless of socio-economic or risk level. Youth learn interviewing skills, how to fill out job applications, resume writing, and are provided job/internship leads. Educational scholarships are also offered to our program participants through the Al Teglia Jobs for Youth Endowment Fund. Scholarship applications are released in early January. Scholarship recipients are recognized at the Annual Jobs for Youth Breakfast held in May. Jobs for Youth also offers summer paid internships in the County to program participants ages 18-21 years old. In order to participate in any of the Jobs for Youth opportunities, youth must attend a job readiness workshop.
