Youth Etiquette Workshop

Essential Skills for Children, Teens & Young Adults

an investment in your child’s future success

Kindness, courtesy, thoughtfulness, and respect of others. Good manners can help you to have better relationships with people you know, and those you will meet.

You’ve heard the stories before:

  • The student who excelled in high school but dropped out of college because he didn’t know how to manage his time independently.
  • Highly intelligent adults who stumble through life because they never learned how to manage money and stay out of debt.
  • Bosses receiving phone calls from employee’s parents – since their children don’t know how to speak up for themselves. Youth etiquette classes are a priority for our students because we believe investing in our future generation of young people is one of our essential duties. It is the only way to ensure a constructive and civilized future. If our children were never taught on managing time, managing money, communicating with others, proper dining, or manner skills, we are failing our future generation.

Excellent social skills are not innate or inherited. They are taught, learned, and practiced. If they are not introduced early, it is difficult to convey the relevance of considering others later.
Our youth etiquette classes are designed to address the age-appropriate needs of the students. Each program is specifically designed to discuss issues and choices that are currently present or on the horizon. It’s easier to nurture first-class child behavior if you work as a family to set the rules for good manners in many different situations.

Etiquette Etiquette Business Consulting Group offers individual classes, group classes, camps, and school programs at truly affordable pricing.

Every day our behavior and actions are evaluated by our family, friends, employers, associates, and clients. Knowing how to behave appropriately in familiar or unusual situations builds self-confidence and character. Displaying common courtesies, practicing good manners, and understanding etiquette essentials will give anyone a significant advantage in any condition. Social skills and good manners put people at ease, help foster cooperative relationships, and open doors for business and social opportunities. Our behavior, how we act in every interpersonal situation, is critical to our success – whatever we do, wherever we go, and whoever we meet.
