Join us for a conversation between Neil Blumenthal, co-founder and co-CEO of Warby Parker, and Wes Moore, CEO of Robin Hood, about their collaborative efforts to ensure New York City public school students have the vision care they need to thrive in the classroom and beyond. This fall begins a three-year expansion of Warby Parker’s Pupils Project that will provide vision services to all kindergartners and first graders across the five boroughs.

RSVP below. Limited spots available.

 
More about Warby Parker’s Pupils Project:   Launched in 2015, Warby Parker’s Pupils Project provides free school-based vision screenings, eye exams, and prescription glasses to New York City schoolchildren. Pupils Project eliminates barriers to access by meeting children in their classrooms, where teachers are often the first to spot issues. It’s estimated that 80% of childhood learning occurs visually, so early intervention is key to influencing a child’s success in school and beyond.
