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.

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.
