Courtesy, Social Confidence & More

So much more than which fork to use!

We offer Social and Life Skills training programs for children and youth ages 5-20, as well as social clubs, parties and events. Manners are so much more than knowing what fork to use! The world can be a difficult place, but we know that teaching young people what the expected and respected behaviors are in social settings, and giving them the knowledge and skills they need to be socially competent, boosts their confidence, builds self-esteem, and helps them present themselves more positively. Our programs cover important and practical life and social skills topics that girls of all ages need to be their very best selves!
