2023 Youth Symposium

Cultivating Black Leadership





Our Future

The 10th Annual Ebony Tie Affair Youth Symposium

More information is to be announced.
The 10th Annual Ebony Tie Affair Youth Symposium (ETAYS) is being held:

Date:          Saturday, November 18, 2023
Time:          8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Location:   Student Center Parlors & Glass Lounge

Delaware State University
1200 N. Dupont Highway
Dover, DE

A continental breakfast, lunch, and incentives will be provided featuring a keynote speaker.
The 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 ask that you identify five to ten students who would benefit from attending this affair.

Space is limited, and we can only accommodate students on a first-come, first-serve basis.
If you have questions, please contact 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
