Review for Eye to Eye National, NEW YORK, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Eye to Eye is an amazing nonprofit. My first experience with their community was mere weeks into my freshman year of college. The bonds I made with my fellow mentors as well as my mentees helped to guide me throughout the rest of my time at the University of Pittsburgh.

Eye to Eye's program is based in the concept of leading by example. This meant that change and development was not only an outcome for mentee but mentors as well. Eye to Eye created an environment where I was not only proud to have dyslexia but I can see the strength in being a different thinker both in school and the office. Eye to Eye allowed us to create connection with middle schools in our area and start changing the conversation about what it means to have a learning disability for students, parents, and teachers. It was amazing the difference we saw in our middle school students over the course of a single year.

I am now in my sixth year as a member of the Eye to Eye community and it continues to provide support and encouragement to me as I move forward in my career. I look forward to remaining an active member of their community.
