Since its inception in 1963, SEO’s mission has been to create a more equitable society by closing the academic and career opportunity gaps for motivated young people from underserved and/or historically excluded communities. For over 50 years, SEO has been an innovator in creating educational, mentorship, training, and professional development programs that maximize the full potential of our students. Our global alumni network of more than 19,000 is composed of accomplished and rising leaders in virtually every industry and represents the promise of our investment in today's SEO participants.
We are committed to creating an ecosystem of excellence, and that ecosystem starts with a passionate, impactful, people-first team that champions the same spirit of innovation, creativity, and change-making that we encourage from our participants. From transitioning to fully remote instruction to keep our High School Scholars on track through the height of a global pandemic, to scaling the size and footprint of our impact to serve more young people across the nation, SEO is seizing every opportunity to create a more equitable society.
