LTYC arts programs are found in communities all across the state of Maryland, Virginia and D.C. through partnerships with schools and various districts. At any given time, our school-based, after school and summer programs provide thousands of underserved youth with opportunities and resources that otherwise would not be available to them.
Programs provided by Leaders of Tomorrow Youth Center integrate arts and education, while inspiring, mentoring and nurturing youth who yearn for self-esteem, achievement and balance in their lives.
Our programs also encourage parents to be actively involved in their children’s growth and success.
