JULY 14: EYE TO EYE SELECTED TO PARTNER WITH BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION
June 30, 2014

Eye to Eye is pleased to participate in the Born Brave: San Antonio event, hosted by Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation (BTWF), to be held on July 14 at the AT&T Center. The organizations will come together to increase awareness of issues facing today's youth and to promote mental and physical health within the community. Eye to Eye and BTWF share a common vision to inspire individuality and empowerment in youth locally and beyond.

BTWF serves youth worldwide and strives to equip them with the safety, skills, and opportunities they need to be their kindest, bravest selves. BTWFs Born Brave: San Antonio event will connect Eye to Eye with a diverse youth community to promote discussions on health, bravery, and community.

"BTWF has an unparalleled ability to bring industry leaders together with local and national organizations in effective partnerships," said David Flink, Eye to Eye co-founder and CEO. "Their advocacy efforts serve as an example for organizations like ours, and we couldn't be more excited to work together."

"Born This Way is thrilled to be partnering with Eye to Eye in San Antonio, said Cynthia Germanotta, the Foundation's president and co-founder, and Gaga's mother. Today's youth are under immense pressure on a day-to-day basis, and Eye to Eye has a proven track record of civic engagement and empowerment. My daughter has reached so many through her music we are excited to be working with Eye to Eye to continue her promotion of kindness and bravery.

About Eye to Eye

With 57 chapters throughout the U.S., Eye to Eye is the only national mentoring movement that pairs kids labeled as "learning disabled" or LD / ADHD or, as Co-Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer David Flink says, who "learn differently" with similarly labeled college students as mentors. An art-based curriculum helps mentees build essential self-esteem and value their own unique minds and inspires them to advocate for their needs in the classroom. The mentoring movement affects everyone involved, creating a new understanding of learning differences and raising expectations of those who carry that label.
