Teen Social Skills Workshop
This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.
Teenagers are the leaders of tomorrow. Present them with the opportunity to feel self-reliant and confident in any social situation by taking interactive lessons taught by a certified etiquette consultant. Our workshop is designed to empower them with life skills that propel them towards personal and professional success. These skills will help them succeed at school, socially, and later, professionally and can create an appealing differentiator that sets them apart. Our lessons aim to instill mindfulness, social consideration and mutual respect as we believe that when teenagers are taught these basic social skills in their early years, they tend to become more socially responsible as they grow up. To survive the rising social pressure, teens must be trained in a way to feel confident and comfortable around people and to find their place in the world.
