Gladeo

Gladeo is a media and technology non-profit fostering career exploration and planning for young people from diverse backgrounds. Gladeo bridges the information, network, and belief gaps that often prevent historically under-served youth from accessing and thriving in careers. Gladeo's free, online platform, www.gladeo.org, is a kind of super-charged, personalized "virtual" career day, which leverages the power of video storytelling and technology to inspire and educate students to a wide variety of careers, not just the ones they see in their community. Our online platform helps students discover the many career paths by letting them explore the experiences of others through diverse storytelling, learn what steps to take to pursue a particular career and connect them with the necessary resources, content and organizations to pursue their goals.
