This event is crafted to expose African-American/Black male students between the ages of 13 – 18 to successful African-American men from all professional backgrounds–including the arts, education, science, politics, and business. This year we are hosting a discussion panel full of these professional men that will engage the young men in a conversation about success and achievement.

The ETA Youth Luncheon planning committee is looking for 75 – 100 young male students from New Castle, Kent, and Sussex Counties to represent their schools at the luncheon. Because we seek balanced representation from many schools, we are asking that you identify five to ten students that would benefit from attending this affair.
