Teens at the Table

Teens at the Table – Parts I and II
Table Manners, Social Behavior and Cotillion Lessons

Lessons in etiquette for students in grade 6-12, presented in eight, step by step lessons for use in the home or classroom.

 Appropriate for youth, young adults and mature adults who seek a refresher course in Social Fitness. This program is designed to be staged in the familiar surroundings of the classroom, library, clubhouse or cafeteria.
