At STAIR, we know that students in our community are struggling with literacy as a result of systemic racism and social injustice. While laws have changed and our educational system has made strides towards the goal of educational equality, there is much work yet to be done.
For 20 years, our volunteer tutors have advocated for change by working one-on-one with students, helping them reach their fullest potential. But we know we can do more.
STAIR is committed to helping create a world where every child is given equal dignity and opportunity. We are taking steps to diversity our board and staff so that our leaders are more reflective of our community and the students that we serve.
Through love and literacy, we will advocate for a better future for our students, because every child deserves to read better and dream bigger.
