Eye to Eye runs a national mentoring program that pairs middle school students with learning and attention differences (like Dyslexia and ADHD) with college and high school students who share similar labels. This program helps us actualize our vision -- to create a world in which people who learn differently are fully accepted, valued, and respected by themselves and others.
In order to serve as an Eye to Eye Mentor, you will need to fill out the following questions. These questions help us gather the necessary information to support your school's chapter and the Mentees we serve. In alignment with all our program participants, we will be asking you to fill out a volunteer agreement form and for your commitment to support the program for the school year, approximately 14-18 art rooms.
Mentors meet weekly with Mentees in a small group setting where together they complete a series of fun art-based projects from a curriculum that is proven to help students value their unique minds, build self-esteem, and develop essential social-emotional skills for success in school and life.
We understand this year brings a new and continued set of challenges related to the global pandemic. We commit to doing what we can to be as flexible and adaptable as possible while keeping safety and wellness as our priority. With that being said, please check in with your Chapter Leader to confirm the Mentoring Model this year for your Chapter.
