Get to Know Us
LAC is a Maryland/DC based non-profit organization whose mission is to use the arts to improve and enhance the educational landscape in marginalized communities. Its primary goal is to raise awareness and money to support artistic expression through unity, inclusion and bridging economic gaps.
Leadership and Arts Coalition was founded two years ago by a group of creatives and community activists. During the founder’s professional careers, they noticed a lack of opportunity and education among their target audience. Our vision is to work closely with our partners across industries to teach, develop and train young people interested in pursuing a career in the arts and entertainment fields. Idleness and social disconnection are among the biggest problems for at risk-youth today. The vulnerable youth in Washington, DC (the nation’s capital) are ranked number one.
LAC recognizes artists as the true historical storytellers and empowers them to help communicate, educate, advocate, and bridge gaps in marginalized and under-served communities that struggle with food insecurity, poverty, and homelessness. Our program aims to properly prepare aspiring artists, creatives, athletes, and entertainers on the business behind the fame, fortune, and stardom.
LAC also organizes workshops, programs, and events in sports, technology, financial literacy, as well as provide educational grants and scholarships. LAC conducts yearly fundraisers, festivals, sports tournaments, conferences, and seminars.
