Mission Statement

-- To increase the reading level of "skill deficient" students who participate in the program -- To increase each participant's sense of self-worth and esteem by providing a program which expands each student's knowledge of self and the greater world of reading -- To provide a caring environment which will promote a greater and more meaningful dialogue among multi-ethnic volunteers, students, teachers and parents

Description

STAIR is a reading tutoring program for at-risk public school second graders reading below grade level who are referred to us by their teachers. STAIR volunteers, after going through an initial training class, tutor the students -- one tutor for each student -- once a week, either after school or on Saturday morning.

Second grade is a critical stage in reading development. If a student is not reading by the end of first grade, then intervention at the second grade level is crucial.
