Dining Classes for Teens and Young Adults

Polished social and eating manners become increasingly important as teens and young adults prepare to enter the competitive social, collegiate, and business worlds. Like the unspoken signals of a secret society, the nuances of good manners proclaim one’s breeding, or lack of it — a situation that can determine which doors will open or which will remain closed to future opportunities.

Give your young adult the skills to handle any circumstance with confidence beyond his or her years.
