is a nonprofit organization that provides free, one-on-one reading tutoring to second and third grade students enrolled in New Orleans area public schools. STAIR's mission is to improve the reading skills and self-esteem of elementary school students. STAIR has been active in the New Orleans area for over 35 years.
Loyola service learning students are trained as reading tutors and assigned to work one-on-one with a STAIR student. Service learning students will work with the same child throughout the semester-long program. STAIR is offering both virtual and in-person tutoring for the Fall 2023 semester.
Service Learning students will learn about the New Orleans public school system, core literacy skills for early elementary students, and the emotional and intellectual development of younger elementary school children.
