Eye to Eye
Mission: Eye to Eye's mission is to improve the life of every person with a learning disability. We fulfill our mission by supporting and growing a network of youth mentoring programs run by and for those with learning differences, and by organizing advocates to support the full inclusion of people with learning disabilities and ADHD in all aspects of society.
About: School As the "Official Sponsor of Different Thinkers," Eye to Eye is the only national mentoring organization run by and for people with learning differences, from powerful chapters in 20 states and passionate involvement in all 50. The goal is to create a world where all youth with LD/ADHD (one in five) can achieve their fullest potential.An art-based curriculum brings together the kids labeled as "learning disabled" or LD/ADHD to build essential social-emotional skills including self esteem and advocacy with similarly labeled college students as mentors. Mentors gain purpose and a community that fosters their own self esteem and leadership skills.The organization reaches new audiences with Eye to Eye Diplomats. "Alumn'Eye" are supported in the transition from college to the workplace and beyond. Eye to Eye culture-change agents also inspire millions to share their abilities.
