Mar 31, 2022 In It Podcast | The power of mentors for kids who learn differently

What’s one way to empower kids who learn differently? Connect them with near-peer mentors who learn differently, too. 

Hosts Gretchen Vierstra and Amanda Morin speak with Marcus Soutra, the president of Eye to Eye, one of Understood’s founding partners, and Chapter Leaders Lydia Blazey and Meera Shamiyeh to discuss how mentoring can help youth gain self-awareness and develop self-advocacy skills.
