The Girls Rule! Etiquette Imperative is designed for pre-kindergarden, primary, middle and high school aged young ladies

This program provides an organized opportunity for discussion of the rules of etiquette in an age appropriate fun and engaging manner.  Access to these esteem building, critical life skills help girls to successfully navigate social situations, enhance their communication skills and serve them well as they transition in to adulthood. 

This customizable program which may be delivered in schools, churches and other youth serving organizations is delivered though fun, interactive exercises in order that the newly learned information becomes a replicable life skill.  Take a sneak peek at our recent winter session, or see what girls are saying about the program!

The curriculum focuses upon a variety of topics such as:  visual poise, personal grooming and style, communication and social etiquette and table manners through fun interactive exercises in order that the newly learned information becomes a replicable life skill.  Upon successful completion of The Etiquette Imperative students receive a certificate of completion to celebrate their achievement.

"This (The Etiquette Imperative) is a beautiful thing.  It is such a blessing to see young ladies be excited about and successfully learn and demonstrate such poise and grace.  You all keep doing what you are doing!"

What Girls Are Saying About The Etiquette Imperative

"I didn't expect to have so much fun or make new friends when my mom told me about the classes." 

"What was the most valuable thing I learned today?  EVERYTHING!  I hope that I can come back." 

"I learned that even if a boy does something that makes me mad, I shouldn't compromise my integrity.  Sometimes, being a lady is about ignoring ignorance."

"Well now I know that being a lady is about what we do AND what we won't allow ourselves to do. 
I like that."
