Since 2011, Leaders of Tomorrow Youth Center, Inc. (LTYC) has successfully provided quality arts programming with teacher training to over 50 schools, resulting in fine arts instruction and enrichment to over 150,000 students ranging in grades K-12 with 85 percent of participating students being residents of Baltimore City, attending Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPS). LTYC offers arts instruction that stimulates innate talents, reinforces academic goals, sparks creativity and meets learning outcomes. We deploy arts educators and practitioners into schools and communities who, alongside teaching staff, directly engage students in creative experiences to connect skills and concepts in the arts with skills and concepts in core content areas like math, reading social studies and science.

The program focus is on the acquisition of knowledge, technique and skills in the arts, thereby building students' capacity for lifelong participation in the arts, which helps students develop cognitive, academic, emotional and physical competencies needed to succeed in life. Instructional strategies include standards-based arts education for students with innovative practices in arts learning that results in increasing specific learning and behavior outcomes.
