    WHAT IS EYE TO EYE? 

    Eye to Eye (formally known as Project Eye-To-Eye) is a nationwide mentoring movement for students labeled with learning disabilities (LD) and/or ADHD. Our program matches up college or high school students labeled with LD/ADHD with middle or elementary school students also labeled with LD/ADHD. Eye to Eye Chapters hold once a week after school programs, using a fun, art based curriculum to help kids to discover and use their individual strengths, value their own unique minds, and speak up for what they need to succeed in the classroom. Our Mentors use individual and group art projects to guide their Mentees to unearth their own potential, in their own way and on their own timetable. Art removes the Mentee’s barriers to learning: there are neither rules nor expected outcomes.
