Mission Statement

Gladeo’s mission is to inspire and help young people discover, navigate and achieve their dream careers by creating innovative multimedia content and distributing it through the web, social media and to guidance counselors in high schools.

Description

Gladeo created an online portal (a "Virtual Career Day") where guidance counselors and students can learn about the vast array of careers from our ever-growing library of content of videos, infographics and career profiles

We interview working professionals to get first-hand, insider information. We also share stories of diverse individuals that these students can relate to, combating stereotypes to encourage all students, regardless of their background, to believe that success is also in their future, ALL in a fun, visually engaging way to effectively reach this young, "digital native" audience.

Gladeo gives guidance counselors the resources they need to inspire and expose their students to the vast world of possibilities, not just the ones in their community and to empower their students to make informed decisions about their future.

With an all-volunteer staff, we have reached over 200,000 students and 400 schools through social media and guidance counselors and feedback has been great. 87% of students said they felt more motivated. 91% said they felt more confident in what steps to take in HS to prepare for their career future. Guidance counselors from across the country have thanked us for our free career resources and been asking us for more!

Gladeo is a finalist for the 2017 Social Innovation Fast Pitch hosted by Social Ventures Partners Los Angeles.
