Eye to Eye is a national LD/ADHD movement dedicated to mentoring. Their vision is simple yet bold: to create a world in which people with LD/ADHD are fully accepted, valued, and respected—not just by society, but also by themselves.
On Community Service days, Kildonan's Eye to Eye students travel to nearby Dover Elementary School to meet with a group of younger students who are labeled LD/ADHD. The activities take place in an art room format. A recent art project involved the mentors and mentees creating plaster casts of their hands, which are joined together in a creative way. The project represents the "permanent bond" the younger students make with their mentors. While the projects themselves provide enjoyment for the students, the artwork is intended to serve as a means by which the mentees gain empowerment. One younger student remarked to his parent, "Mom, I love Eye to Eye, because there are kids just like me!"

Kildonan Eye to Eye students also raise funds by selling donuts to support their annual trip to EdRev (Education Revolution) Conference held in San Francisco. EdRev is a unique day of information, resources, celebration and community for students who learn differently and the families and professionals who support them.
