The Luncheon is an opportunity for New Look’s supporters, community influencers, and high-profile individuals to come together and recognize the power of New Look and the incredible work that has transformed the lives of thousands of young people around the globe over the past 15 years.

“What started as an annual week-long camp for kids from underserved communities to come together, make lasting friendships and feel empowered to become something one day, has evolved into a global organization that has impacted thousands of youth around the world,” said Usher Raymond IV. “I’m unbelievably proud of the accomplishments of each and every New Look youth leader, and I feel confident that we are truly shaping the next generation of leaders.”

Each year, New Look honors and recognizes the diverse ways individuals, organizations and corporations are empowering youth as leaders and change agents around the world.

Mayor Kasim Reed will be presented with New Look’s Service Legacy Award for his unwavering commitment to investing in initiatives that support youth education and their futures. Cory Nettles, New Look Board Member and founder and Managing Director of Generation Growth Capital, Inc., will be honored with the Servant Leadership Award for his guidance and expertise in the strategic development of New Look’s goals. General Electric will receive the Youth Catalyst Award for their ongoing commitment to providing New Look youth leaders with incredible opportunities through their internship program.
