Marcus Soutra, National Program Director of Project Eye-To-Eye, learning disabilities activist and Keene State College graduate, comes to Keene on Thursday, April 1st from 5:00-6:30 p.m. at Keene State College, Rhodes Hall, Room N118. Speaking on “Empowering the Lives of Children with Learning Differences,” Marcus will share his story and discuss his work with Project Eye-to-Eye, with a special focus on Camp Vision.

Marcus was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD at a young age and spent most of his childhood feeling stupid, misunderstood, and ashamed of his learning disability. Over time Marcus grew to understand that his learning disability was not going to determine his fate and after finding success in school, he chose to devote his life to paving the path for all students to find success in their education.

Marcus is a graduate of Keene State College and the founder of the Project Eye-To-Eye chapter at Keene State College. Project Eye-To-Eye is a national mentoring program that matches college and high school students with LD/ADHD. Acting as tutors, role models and mentors, with elementary, middle, and high school students with LD/ADHD, their purpose is to empower these students and help them find success.

Now the National Program Director of Project Eye-To-Eye, Marcus is responsible for managing and cultivating Project Eye-To-Eye chapters nationwide. In addition, he is the co-founder of Project Eye-To-Eye's Camp Vision. All of Marcus's work is done with the goal to ensure that students labeled with learning disabilities are able to celebrate their differences, and through that celebration, are given the abilities to find their own success.

Families, educators, professionals, and students are invited to hear Marcus’s story. There is no cost to attend this event but registration is required.
