Sharing Season is here and we couldn't be more excited! Each week in March and April our scholars and the greater community will have access to in-person and virtual master classes featuring local performing and creative artists in the DMV. In addition, we will be undertaking a variety of initiatives and projects that we will share with you highlighting the amazing work being done this academic year.
Sharing Season provides LTYC the opportunity to share the joy of the arts with our community while letting you know about the valuable work we undertake year-round. Since 2004, LTYC has worked to provide underserved youth with arts enrichment programs that nurture both discovered and undiscovered talents and leadership skills to promote successful, balanced lives. Our mission and vision reflect a deep commitment to today’s youth, empowering them to excel in the arts, build higher self-esteem, promote positive social development, strengthen academics, and facilitate creativity. To date, LTYC has positively impacted the lives of 160,000 students, and we work diligently each and every day to impact 160,000 more.
As a nonprofit, we rely on donations from supporters like you who understand the immense value and significant impact of our work. Research has shown that the arts promote positive development in students in the areas of academic, social, and emotional development. We have seen exactly this in the youth we serve. We are not only providing an education in the arts to our students but helping them discover a path to a brighter future.
The arts don’t discriminate based on age, race, gender, or any other measure. With so many obstacles children must overcome, particularly minority and underserved students, the arts can quite literally provide a lifeline. Help us provide that lifeline to the youth we serve by making a donation to LTYC today.
