Theodore Longlois is excited to bring his eight years of experience working with youth to serve the Horizons School. He will teach career development courses and enable every student to succeed in the workforce.
Theodore graduated from Harvard College in 2016, where he received a B.A. in Folklore and Mythology with a minor in Spanish and Global Health/Health Policy. At Harvard, he was an advocate for students with learning disabilities, autism, and behavioral health conditions at Boston Children’s Hospital, a supervisor and case manager at Harvard Square Summer Homeless Shelter, and director of Response Peer Counseling.
After college, Theodore served with AmeriCorps at Impact America in Birmingham, where he taught middle and high school debate, directed free income tax clinics, and conducted free vision screenings at preschools across the state. He then went on to teach middle school debate at Success Academy Harlem North Central and worked as an advocate coordinator for sexual assault survivors at the Tuscaloosa SAFE Center. He believes every youth deserves an equal opportunity to succeed and firmly guided by principles of empowerment and justice.
In his spare time, Theodore likes to play with his grumpy cat, write, read, hike, and cook. He also volunteers at the Birmingham Crisis Center and as a youth mentor.
