Life Pieces To Masterpieces is proud to have partnerships with universities and businesses throughout the city.
We give special thanks to the following Program Partners:

American University Center for Community Engagement and Service

AU brings 10-15 trained tutors to LPTM each day through their DC Reads program. Tutors work one-on-one with our Apprentices to help develop their reading comprehension, phonics and math skills. Assessments show that Apprentices come to LPTM behind in reading skills. The goal is to get them on target for their grade level. Learn more
