If you are a college student with a learning disability (LD) or ADHD, you could be the difference in the life of a younger student who also has an LD/ADHD.
What is Eye to Eye?
Eye to Eye is a national mentoring program that pairs college and high school students with learning disabilities (LD) and/or ADHD with middle school students who also learn differently. Each week, mentors work with their mentees on art projects and activities designed to help the younger students embrace their learning differences and develop key social-emotional skills that promote academic and personal success.
