Gladeo is a digital media non-profit fostering career exploration for young people from diverse backgrounds.
We created a "Virtual Career Day", an online platform that 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. We believe career exploration and education has to start early, especially for underserved students because otherwise, how do these kids aspire to and pursue careers they've never heard of?
