Who We Are


But there’s a way forward. Eye to Eye knows. Each of us was once a kid in the corner.

Our Motivation

Eye to Eye gives the kid in the corner an inside chance — to succeed, to self-advocate, to graduate, to have community, to live a life of hope.

Why E2E Hero 2 Cw

Eye to Eye is a welcoming hand, ushering students with learning and attention issues into a community where they are helped to move from self-doubt to empowerment — and even their own version of greatness — by near-peers who face many of the same challenges themselves.

Lauren Sessions Profile

“As a high school science teacher, I love to watch the growth I see in my students as they participate in Eye to Eye. The empathic, inclusive community is life changing for students, who may feel like they ‘don’t belong’ in the typical classroom setting."
