Narrative

The only national mentoring movement that pairs kids who have learning disabilities and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (LD / ADHD) with college and high school mentors with similar challenges. Using an arts-based curriculum, mentors help their mentees understand their unique way of learning, building self-esteem and skills they need to become self-advocates.

Eye to Eye brings together middle school students who learn differently (in grades 5 through 8) with local high school and college students who also learn differently in a supervised, school-based setting where they navigate a fun and engaging weekly curriculum of projects proven to develop the most critical skills students who learn differently need to thrive in school and life. As middle school students grow social and emotional skills and gain inspiration from positive role models, high school and college students get hands-on opportunities to develop and practice leadership and professional skills.
