Human Development System

Life Pieces To Masterpieces' Unique Human Development SystemTM

LPTM Human Development SystemTM is a concrete set of beliefs that address the challenges that our young people and their families face through artistic expression, increased self-awareness, and positive decision-making. It is a proven system that has elevated our apprentices to discover a more positive perspective focused on preparing for their own future and giving back to their communities.

In Life Pieces To Masterpieces character-building Human Development System™, each apprentice is supported by LPTM’s purpose, premise, and process as they face the various challenges in their lives. Using the values we teach (LPTM Shield of FaithTM) and carefully chosen thoughts, words, and actions, apprentices control their own destiny. They learn to balance their emotions and turn anger into courage; greed into compassion; and ignorance into wisdom -- reaching their visions of being well-balanced gentlemen, scholars, artists, and athletes.
