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.

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.
