Mission Statement

STAIR's mission is to increase the reading skills and self-esteem of second graders through one-on-one tutoring.

Description

For 18 years, STAIR (Start the Adventure in Reading) has been on a mission to increase the reading skills and self-esteem of second graders in Birmingham. Reading on grade level by the third grade is the single greatest predictor of high school graduation and career success. Unfortunately, over 85% of third graders in the city of Birmingham did not reach that benchmark last year. Historically, through one-on-one tutoring at STAIR, students have doubled their reading scores after participating in the program.
