Schools and Youth Organizations
Help your students develop social skills that are essential for leadership and success!
The objective of an etiquette and civility workshop is not only to teach students of all ages the technical aspects of etiquette, like proper handshaking, appropriate sitting positions, and how to dine with finesse, but more importantly, to emphasize and bring understanding and awareness to how courtesy, consideration, directly influences others and helps develop healthy relationships.
Workshops are conducted in a lighthearted and interactive manner, allowing students to learn through discussion.
What the Students Say:“…You truly did help us very much in this difficult process.” –Ryan “Mrs. Randall provided a safe, fun environment to ask LOTS of questions, laugh and learn.” – Molly “She really helped me feel confident in going into my interview and made me feel more mature.” – Blake

COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOL
ENTRANCE INTERVIEW WORKSHOP
The high school application process can be a nerve-racking time for parents and students. The pressure for the student to achieve great grades, pile on the extra-curricular activities, volunteering, hobbies, and perhaps the most dispute-causing topic, the school selection. For many students, this will be their first interview; that alone can create added anxiety.
Transform self-consciousness into self-confidence by providing your students with the knowledge and essential skills to succeed.
