Call Me MISTER
A Leadership Teaching Program
The Call Me MISTER program is a national teacher leadership program that not only prepares young men for a successful career as an elementary or secondary teacher, but also provides them with resources that will place them in a position to effectively impact the lives of children.
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.
Who Are We? Longwood Call Me MISTER
MISTERs Answer the Call
On January 19, Longwood’s Call Me MISTER program answered the Martin Luther King Jr. Service Challenge by volunteering at the Farmville Area Habitat for Humanity. Students began their day by pre-registering for one of five service sites. After a brief breakfast and orientation session, students worked until 2:00 p.m. at their service sites and gathered at the Moton Museum for reflection and a celebration. MISTERs spent part of their work experience at ReStore, the retail operation that supports building Habitat homes and also assisted on the 25th "Anniversary" home building site. Longwood MISTERs are seeking to complete 300 volunteer hours during the current school year. Other service projects include tutoring at Prince Edward Elementary and Middle Schools, partnering with the Moton Museum, and serving Farmville, Virginia.
