📖 Our Story

While he was walking around the city of Downtown Frederick, CEO Chris Pondoc noticed the abundance of “Help Wanted” signs plastered on the windows of local businesses. As a freshman in high school, he also recollected how many of his friends were seeking jobs, volunteer, and internship opportunities but were having difficulties finding them. He decided that he had to fix this problem – thus, Vita EDO was born.
