The 8th Annual Ebony Tie Affair Youth Symposium (ETAYS) is being held on Saturday, November 23, 2019, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Delaware State University, Martin Luther King Jr. Student Center, 1200 N. Dupont Highway, Dover, DE 19901.  Our theme is – “From Plight to Purpose:  We Grow As We Go!” 

Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Abdul-Malik Muhammad, an educator and advocate for young people, and he has more than 25 years of experience with facilitating youth groups.  We will engage young males, grades 6 – 12, in a variety of group activities focused on financial literacy, decision making, and a Circle of Brothers, focused on engaging young males in a discussion about the challenges they face. 

A continental breakfast, lunch, and  incentives will be provided.

This event is crafted to expose African-American/Black male students to successful African-American men from all professional backgrounds–including the arts, education, science, politics and business.

The ETA Youth Luncheon planning committee is looking for 50 – 60 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.

To register you must complete our online registration form . 
Space is limited and we can only accommodate students on a first-come, first-serve basis.

 If you have questions, please contact Mr. Tim Cooper at 302-897-5893 or Carlton Lampkins, Ed.D. at 302-545-8044.

 Don’t delay, as this a first come, first served event!   Space is limited!

With Best Regards,
Carlton Lampkins, Chairman
