Call Me Mister
Through its partnership with Cheyney University, Chester Community Charter School offers its fourth-fifth-and sixth-grade students mentoring services and tutorial support through its Call Me Mister Program.
For CCCS students, this program provides mentoring through use of skits/vignettes and positive character strategies to demonstrate life lessons, such as: making good decisions, creating a positive sense of purpose/pride and maximizing opportunities. The program is a teacher leadership program that provides its college facilitators with the tools necessary to succeed as pre-service teachers. It is also part of a national initiative designed to encourage more men of color to dedicate their lives to becoming role models in the field of education.
Cheyney University is among several institutions of higher education implementing the Call Me Mister program.
This past fall, ten CCCS students, who are regular participants in the program, were invited to attend the Call Me Mister luncheon hosted on Cheyney's campus. At the luncheon, CCCS students showcased some of the positive self-esteem strategies they were taught in the (TIMEFRAME)-long program.
