Boulder Valley School District’s Eye to Eye Program
“Eye to Eye has allowed me to help middle school students navigate through school while having a learning disability. When I was going through middle school, I was completely alone and had no guidance. If I had someone to help me through this process and share their knowledge, I would have had such a better experience. I am happy to be able to pass on all the things I have learned about having a learning difference to someone else.” ~Chonzie, Junior at Fairview High School and Eye to Eye Chapter Leader
We are proud to induct Boulder Valley School District’s Eye to Eye Program into the Susan Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame.
Boulder Valley School District’s Eye to Eye program pairs local high school and college students with learning and attention differences with middle school students who have similar learning styles. Mentors and Mentees meet after school once per week and complete an arts-based curriculum and series of community-building activities designed to promote critical social-emotional skills and improve student success. The program began in 2015 and is currently operating at four schools within the district.
