“1. Corporations in the area must be more involved with the youth. 2. Events like today’s luncheon need to be published their events and involvement to the communities and businesses. 3. We should have an event for teenagers like the one today and use it to nurture and mentor. 4. We need to demand the negative shows our youth are exposed to off the air. 5. The African American (eagles) leaders need to step up, and forward. Let others (our youth know who they are) set examples.”
