Dining Programs

Parents seek these programs because they offer young people confidence-building skills in party and dining situations. After taking these classes, students are free to enjoy their friends, the event and be comfortable and self-assured in social situations.

Etiquette and dining skills are not simply preparation for dress-up and attending exclusive parties but are life skills. Our dining tutorials in training are fun but with an instructional focus. The dining tutorials and the ELI dining lesson plans you receive prepare you to teach dining etiquette preparing students appropriate for everything from a White House dinner to a picnic, from dining in a restaurant to enjoying popcorn at the movies.

A sample of the topics include:

  • Host, Hostess and Guest Duties
  • Table Manners at Home and in Restaurants
  • Party Invitations and Replies
  • The ABCs of Dining
  • Gift Etiquette
  • Receiving Lines
  • Thank-you Notes
  • Tutorial Luncheon and Dinner

Each program is interactive and teaches courtesy and respect through role-playing exercises and illustrated workbooks.

The programs are divided into three age groups:

  • Ages 8 - 12
  • Ages 13 - 17
  • Ages 18 - 24

Etiquette and dining programs are provided for each age group, plus a bonus program and workbook on interview skills for ages 13-17.

Professional Business Savvy and Professional Dining Savvy (ages 18-24) are geared to colleges, universities, honor students, leadership organizations, athletes, sororities, fraternities, and job placement firms that cater to students (complete with two workbooks and two CD-ROMs, plus bonus program and workbook, Employment and You).
