The LPTM Color Me CommunityTM Training Program is an innovative approach to sharing the best practices and proven methodologies we have developed over our 18 years of experience working with young black men from Washington, DC's most under-served communities. We offer workshops rooted in our Human Development System on the following topics:

  • Youth Leadership Training
  • Community Building
  • Arts, Humanities, and Community Development
  • Intergenerational Engagement
  • Cultural Competency and Implicit Bias
  • Professional Techniques in Urban Education
  • Customized Team-Building for Educators, Community Organizations, or Corporate Retreats


Life Pieces To Masterpieces has facilitated workshops and trainings with local non-profits, teachers at Drew Elementary School and the Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys, The World Bank Group, Homeless Children Playtime Project, DC Promise Neighborhood Initiative and conferences hosted by the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color (COSEBOC), the College Board, and others. Through our Color Me Community ConversationsTM series, our skilled team of trainers builds discussion with DC community members from all backgrounds around the implications of race, gender, cultural background, and other forms of identity in our communities.

"...thank you and the LPTM family for your stellar work with the Bishop Walker School faculty and staff this morning.  I am confident that the awakening that was begun today will help lay the foundation for enriched relationships that will contribute to a successful school year. We look forward to a powerful partnership with LPTM in support of the boys and young men to whom we are committed."

-James Woody, Executive Director - Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys
