Awarded ‘2018 NPT’s Best NonProfits To Work For,’ we are the only national mentoring movement that pairs kids who have learning disabilities and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (LD / ADHD) with college and high school mentors who have been similarly labeled. Using our arts-based curriculum, mentors help their mentees understand their unique way of learning and thinking, building self-esteem and skills they need to become self-advocates.

We will reach 25% of all middle schoolers in America with identified learning differences by 2024.
