Teens Etiquette Classes

Manners are a lost art in today’s society because children are spending more and more time in front of their televisions and their computers and losing out on social interaction. What these teens do not know is that good manners are a skill that can provide an advantage in the business world as well as in their daily life.

This 3 day workshop begins April 2, 2013

Workshop meets for three consecutive days beginning Tuesday April 2, 2013. The last session concludes with a dinner party where the students can practice everything they have learned while enjoying a light lunch. Classes are interactive and are taught using role-playing exercises.

Students will receive a handbook containing the lessons for the course that they may keep and use to help reinforce the proper social behavior, self-respect and self-confidence that they will take away from the class – while having fun & making new friends.
