Support Georgetown DC Reads Site Partner!
This Giving Tuesday, support one of our DC Reads site partners, Life Pieces to Masterpieces!
LPTM provides opportunities for Black and Brown boys and young men from age 3 into adulthood to express themselves; teach and uplift others as mentors; navigate structural social barriers; and contribute positive change in their communities. Boys enter the program as early as age three, with programming including a daily afterschool arts and education mentoring program from 3:00-7:00, which involves transportation and a meal, a college- and career-prep Saturday Academy for high school young men who also serve as mentors, a full-day six-week summer program, and family and community engagement. All programs are free for all youth and families. In all programs, LPTM provides an environment of love, security, and expression. Black and Brown boys and young men, from pre-school to grad-school and beyond, discover their authentic selves; awaken to a sense of purpose; have their brilliance and humanity valued and nurtured – and see themselves as the beautiful Masterpieces they are. In their artwork, advocacy, and model of mentorship, LPTM boys and young men are protagonists of positive change.
