Mission:

Eye to Eye's mission is to improve the lives of youth with learning differences by supporting and growing a network of student mentoring programs run by and for those with learning differences, and by organizing advocates to support the full inclusion of people with learning disabilities and ADHD in all aspects of society. Eye to Eye’s vision is that one day society will be a better place because all youth with LD/ADHD will achieve their fullest potential.

About Eye to Eye

Eye to Eye is the only national LD/ADHD (learning differences/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) movement dedicated to mentoring. In addition to their core mentor/mentee relationships that pair high school and college students with elementary and middle schoolers, Eye to Eye brings people together both inside and outside the LD/ADHD community with the Think Different Diplomats, camps for students with LD/ADHD, and a variety of events.

Eye to Eye is building a youth-powered movement designed to combat the prevailing stigmas attached to learning differences, and to equip students with the tools and sense of personal efficacy they need to self-advocate.
