EAU CLAIRE — David Flink, the national director of Project Eye-to-Eye, will visit DeLong Middle School Library at 6 p.m. Friday, April 27.

Project Eye-to-Eye is a national initiative that uses art and the power of one-on-one mentoring, matching University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students who have struggled with learning differences with DeLong sixth graders who are struggling with similar issues.

The second part of the two-part program utilizes art for students to express themselves in a creative and appropriate context and to engage socially with others like themselves.

The UW-Eau Claire Project Eye-to-Eye campus organization will sponsor Flink's visit to Eau Claire for dinner and a viewing of an art show at DeLong Middle School with the families of students who have been involved in the program and their college mentors.

Flink also will talk to family members about other ways to help these students.

For more information about Project Eye-to-Eye, contact Teri Sisulak, UW-Eau Claire Eye-to-Eye Chapter president, at sisulatm@uwec.edu.
