About

STAIR, a nonprofit children’s literacy program, is seeking tutors to work with 2nd grade students at Harahan Elementary school for the 2017-2018 school year. All tutors are required to attend one of our free 2.5 hour training sessions, and clear a background check and drug screening (both are free to the tutor, and are performed to ensure the safety of our students).

Each year STAIR recruits and trains hundreds of volunteers to work one-on- one with public school lower elementary school students to improve their reading and language skills as well as their self-esteem. These students are particularly in danger of academic failure and need extra help to succeed. The program works in partnership with schools to supplement the classroom work. Collaboration with parents, teachers, and principals allows STAIR to target the students who can most benefit from the services STAIR offers. The program has served over 6,000 young students from greater New Orleans public schools since it began in 1985.

The STAIR program provides each child with professionally designed curriculum materials, school supplies, teaching aids, healthy snacks, and trained site managers to supervise and lend qualified help at each site. STAIR depends on support from the community to provide this service at no cost to the students.
