Call Me MISTER
A Scholarship Teaching Program
The Call Me MISTER program is a national teacher leadership program that not only prepares you for a successful career as an elementary or secondary teacher, but also provides you with resources that will place you in a position to effectively impact the lives of children.
Program participants are selected from among under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at-risk communities.
The Call Me MISTER program is contributing to the talent pool of excellent teachers by identifying and supporting young men who are literally "touching the future" by teaching children. This successful model seeks to reverse the lack of young men who are leaders, role models, and teachers in communities.
