Summer Program

LPTM Connecting Communities Across the GlobeTM

Our summer program, LPTM Connecting Communities Across the GlobeTM ,engages 60 boys and young men ages 3-14 daily from June to August between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. The program incorporates two core strategies, one academic/education based that includes in-depth math and reading literacy and individual tutoring and the other focused on art. Students are assessed at the beginning of the program to see where they need the most support. The art/creative expression offers students the opportunity to express themselves and learn to collaborate through the arts.

Apprentices learn about themselves through the context of the greater world. Each group decides on their own country name and learns about that country as well as how it compares to their community in Washington, DC. Through guest speakers, field trips, and cultural enrichment activities, our apprentices are exposed to foreign cultures and learn to read, greet, and count in at least two foreign languages.

To register for our Summer Program, please download and fill out our application form and submit it to Loretta Curry, Director of Programs and Education, either by email at or in person at our office on the fourth floor of Drew Elementary School. Apprentices_Summer Application 2014.pdf
