Gladeo is a digital media non-profit fostering career exploration for young people from diverse backgrounds. We are dedicated to inspiring and helping young people discover, navigate and achieve their dream careers by creating innovative multimedia career content and distributing it online (through the web and social media) and offline (through school counselors and our career exploration workshop).
We created a "Virtual Career Day", an online portal where guidance counselors and students can learn about the vast array of careers from our ever-growing library of content. Our content is Inspirational: The challenge with non-celebrity careers is that the people who do them and their success stories (and they do exist) are less flashy and don't get blasted across social media, and as a result, the inspiration they could have sparked doesn't spread. Gladeo shares inspiring career stories (written and video) of diverse individuals to breakdown stereotypes, to open eyes to new opportunities, and to inspire people to believe that their aspirations are achievable. "You need to see it, to believe it." Our content is Informational: We take a personal and action-oriented approach, gathering first-hand, practical knowledge directly from actively working professionals, not just information downloaded from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We also include non-linear career tracks that don't follow an easily navigable path. We include information like what they need to be doing in high school and college to prepare, what classes they need to be taking, what trade magazines to start reading, what educational institutions have the best programs, how to land that first foot in the door and more. Gladeo gives school 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.
It was a huge pleasure working with Hardik. He worked on a very important project for us that will help us scale and get to the next level as an organization. He saved us many hours of work and his work was so thorough and comprehensive. On top of that, he has a great disposition and a passion for helping our mission.
Working with Gladeo and Michelle, in particular, was a great experience! The firm has a great mission and vision to progress towards equality in opportunity in the United States. I sincerely hope that Gladeo succeeds in achieving all the objectives that it sets forth.
