Jamari and STAIR

by Margaret Sullivan, Tutor

On the first day of STAIR, I met Jamari. 

He was a happy boy, excited about having a tutor of his very own.

Like many other students, he feels overwhelmed when asked to read in class, but his mom makes sure he comes to STAIR every Tuesday and Thursday...

Because reading changes everything.

Jamari isn't alone. Four out of five students, just like him, aren't able to read on grade level by the third grade.

And reaching that benchmark is the most important predictor of high school graduation and career success...

Because reading changes everything.

But by partnering with Jamari twice a week we can do a lot.

Jamari and I can work together to develop his skills so that he can become a stronger and more confident reader.

With your help we can provide the support that Jamari needs in order to be successful in school and in life...

Because reading changes everything.

Did you know that every $1 donated to STAIR is matched with $2 worth of volunteer support?

Jamari and over 200 other STAIR students need us. Whether he wants to be a teacher, doctor or welder, he needs you to support today...

Because you can help change everything.

Students like Jamari work with their tutors twice a week.
