STAIR – Start the Adventure in Reading
STAIR is a volunteer-based, non-profit children’s literacy organization that provides reading tutors for public school 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students. STAIR was founded in New Orleans in 1985. Over the last 28 years, STAIR‘s trained volunteers have tutored more than 6,000 public school children who qualify for the program.
