Upcoming Events: Finishing School For the 21st Century Dining & Social Etiquette for Children

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 youths 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.

Some of the top­ics cov­ered in social eti­quette include:

  • Pre­sen­ta­tion Skills
  • First Impressions/Appearance
  • Body lan­guage
  • Intro­duc­tions and handshakes
  • Please, Thank You and Excuse Me
  • Tele­phone skills
  • Thank you notes

Some of the top­ics cov­ered in Din­ing Eti­quette include:

  • For­mal table settings
  • Pos­ture at the table
  • Proper table talk
  • Menus and order­ing meals
  • Nap­kins
  • Dif­fi­cult to eat foods
  • Din­ing do’s and don’ts

This two week class meets every Mon­day begin­ning August 13th.  The last ses­sion will be held at a local restau­rant where the stu­dents can prac­tice every­thing they have learned while enjoy­ing a hosted 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.
