From Stigma to Celebration: 25 Years of Embracing Neurodiversity

25 years ago David Flink set out with the bold idea that young people who learned differently deserved to be seen, heard and valued when he created Eye to Eye. Together with Eye to Eye’s co-founder, Marcus Soutra, they developed a near-peer mentoring program that has grown to a national scale and affected the lives of thousands of young adults’ lives. Today, Eye to Eye offers mentoring, professional learning for educators, and youth organizing opportunities - and we’re not done yet! Your support of Eye to Eye, and long-standing belief in our mission to improve the educational experience and outcomes of neurodiverse young people, while engaging them and their allies in the movement for a more equitable and inclusive society, has brought us to the 25th year of incredible impact - thank you.

We can’t wait to celebrate this milestone with you at the gala!
