It’s a point of pride for us: Eye to Eye is run by and for people with learning and attention issues.
We transition students as we welcome them — from a place of isolation and uncertainty to a newfound sense of assurance and belonging. In turn, we inspire the next generation of different learners and leaders. As our community grows, so does our effectiveness. Together, we form a chain of confidence that changes the world.
In 1998, a group of college students with learning and attention issues from Brown University sat down with similarly-labeled elementary school students from Fox Point Elementary in Providence, RI. The Brown students called themselves Project Eye-to-Eye, the name for their public service project. The program had one simple goal: give these younger students hope.
