We live in a broken education system – one that hasn’t changed in over 100 years. For years, we’ve been told that the only way to get ahead is to excel at grades, scores, and exams. There was a time when 80% was great, now it seems even 95% doesn’t get you anywhere. What then of those of us, that dare to dream beyond? Well, when they find the right calling they go on to do so much more.

We created GIDE to help high school students find their calling. The right calling.
