  About Eye to Eye mentoring
WHO WE ARE
 
We are 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 who have been similarly labeled. Using our arts-based curriculum, mentors help their mentees understand their unique way of learning and thinking, building self-esteem and skills they need to become self-advocates.

For the past 20 years, research has consistently demonstrated that these skills are fundamental to the successful transition of youth with learning disabilities into higher education and the workforce. Eye to Eye helps all participants in the areas of self-perception, metacognition, attitude toward school and the academic community, and self-advocacy behaviors.
