Description

Who we are:

Founded in 1996, Life Pieces To Masterpieces provides opportunities for African American males in greater Washington DC by developing character, unlocking potential, and empowering them to transform their lives and communities. We serve more than 150 boys and young men annually in under-served communities in Washington, D.C. Our continuing goal is to nurture, embrace, encourage, and elevate African American boys and young men so that they grow into mature men who demonstrate social responsibility and create positive change in their communities.

What we offer: Life Pieces' mission is actualized through three main programs:

  • Academic Education—This program engages about 75 apprentices in rigorous after-school homework assistance, tutoring, literacy training, math skill development and computer training. Our LPTM Central location at Drew Elementary School is open to apprentices 6-7 days a week—from 3:30-7:30 after school during the week and flexible hours on the weekends.
  • Art/Creative Expression—This program is designed specifically to engage apprentices on a weekly basis in our creative process: Connecting, Creating, Contributing, and Celebrating (for more information on our creative process as well as samples of our signature artistic style, please visit www.lifepieces.org). The process guides apprentices to channel their life experiences using the creation of acrylic collage paintings, original poetry, prose, oratory, movement/dance and music.
  • Saturday Academy—This program is a twice-monthly, five-hour long program that offers African American male high school students training in our proven-effective Human Development System (HDS) as well as a series of workshops focusing on important skill sets for college-bound students, including résumé building, mock interviews, essay writing, financial management, college preparedness, study skills and many others.

What we've done: Here are a few of our most recent accomplishments and distinctions:

  • 100% graduation rate (this in a city where less than 40% of African American males ever graduate)
  • Selected artwork is being documented by the Smithsonian for display in the Anacostia Community Museum and the African American History and Culture Museum (2015)
  • Our Executive Director, Ms. Mary Brown, received Georgetown University's John Thompson Jr Legacy of a Dream Award during the Martin Luther King Celebration on January 20, 2013 at the Kennedy Center
  • LPTM was selected as thesole nonprofit beneficiary of the 2013 BET Honors
