Eye to Eye

Mentors work with children through the Eye-to-Eye program.

Program Overview

Eye to Eye is the only national movement that pairs kids with learning disabilities (LD) and attention deficit hyperactivity (ADHD) disorder with similarly labeled college students. By utilizing an art-based curriculum, the mentors in our programs help kids with LD and ADHD build self-esteem as they embrace their abilities as different thinkers. Eye to Eye promotes self-advocacy and continues to strike out stigma so that those who are labeled can become their own best advocates. Eye to Eye mentors attend weekly programming from 3:30-5:30pm on Mondays OR Tuesdays.

Imagine if your teacher did not think you could learn...and you did anyway. Respect LD/ADHD.

Eye to Eye is a year-long commitment for GU students. We strongly encourage mentors to consider committing to the program for longer than one year, but this is not a requirement.
