Empowering Students With Learning Disabilities
Through the Power of Mentorship
Project Eye-To-Eye is a national mentoring program that matches college and high school students with Learning Disabilities/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (LD/ADHD), acting as tutors, role models and mentors, with elementary, middle, and high school students with LD/ADHD in order to empower these students and help them find success.
Project Eye-To-Eye’s mission is to develop a coalition of mentoring programs for students who have learning disabilities and to empower these individuals to celebrate their differences. To achieve this mission, Project Eye-To-Eye partners with local communities, public and private schools, universities, and local businesses to bring adults who have learning disabilities into the lives of younger students who have learning disabilities.
