Helping You Make a Meaningful Mark on Today’s Youth

Etiquette Certification: Are you thinking of embarking on a journey of teaching manners to children? 

If so, you are about to start a rewarding experience.  The world needs exactly what you have to offer.

New licensees have shared with me so many stories as to why they started their businesses. 

Teaching manners is part of our culture. Children enjoy and benefit from the confidence of knowing how to behave in all social situations. 

Every child deserves to learn good manners.

2.Do you want to make it easy and purchase a total start-up program that has absolutely everything you need?

3.Do you want an expert to show you the way?

If you have the desire to teach manners to children, I want to help guide you through the process. 

These 5 Powerful Tools Will Help You Discover How Our Etiquette Certification Program Assists You in Getting a FAST START. 

A new licensee had her first training call today. She chose the video option.  Even though it was her first call, we had the chance to talk about all of her ideas on where she wanted to offer her manners programs.  Later this week we will have her second call.  She is in the works of using our templates to propose a program for a nine-week after-school workshop.

Another licensee who has almost completed her certification wants to focus on preschool.  In fact, this licensee already has submitted a proposal to a library in her community. 

This brings us to the first tool….

Testimonial from a Current Manners To Go, Licensee

“Thanks to Manners To Go, the last three years have provided experiences that I would have never encountered.  

MTG has been the vehicle that put my passion for equipping youth with valuable life skills into motion. 

I have learned from a variety of enriching instructional opportunities over the last few years including private instruction, country clubs,  an inner-city behavioral program, after-school programs, scout troops, and much more!   

There is something so rewarding about seeing a student, the outgoing and talkative or quiet and reserved alike, gain confidence as they learn and apply the tools to navigate an otherwise intimidating social situation with ease”.

About Lisa Richey and Manners To Go 
Lisa Richey

Most likely we already share something in common. We believe that teaching children manners, character, and social-emotional skills are very important.

Manners To Go™ is a full-service company for those choosing to teach manners to children. You can make a difference. All children and teenagers deserve to feel what it is like to be confident and use good manners out in the world.

Manners To Go™ is taught in public, private, and charter schools around the world. The New York Times, Parents Magazine, and Fox News have all featured Manners To Go and the many benefits of teaching social skills to children.

Whether you are an educator who wants to teach it in the classroom or someone who is looking to become trained and certified, we provide all the solutions.

My name is Lisa Richey, and I am the founder of Manners To Go™. This brand has given me the honor of teaching manners to thousands of people around the world. The journey has taken me from Portland, Oregon to the Middle East. I believe that manners are not about judgment or rules. Manners are about self-interest. It really is about how using good manners makes you feel on the inside

Lisa Richey’s Manners To Go certification program provides a highly efficient and effective training program for anyone considering starting a manners and etiquette business. I selected her program because of the virtual delivery method of training. The lesson plans and student handouts were easy to download and review before engaging in her one-on-one conference calls. During each call, Mrs. Richey was very focused in conveying her business strategies she has proven to be successful over the years. Mrs. Richey’s Manners To Go certification program is really a “best value” program considering her efficient use of the virtual delivery method of training, the quality of teaching materials provided and the effective, interactive business calls with her I found necessary to guide my steps to make the business of teaching manners successful. ~ Aleta Greenspan, Alabama

I was looking for charm school type material for my after school program for girls, and came upon the Manners To Go website. It was like finding a treasure trove of “what-to-do(s)” and “how-to-do(s)” on manners for children. It was more that I could have imagined finding. It is, without a doubt, one of the best decisions I have ever made.

In receiving my MTG training, Lisa provided every tool and resource needed to become a successful MTG Consultant. What excited me the most is that the training includes access to her many years of experience as a successful businesswoman.

I recommend the MTG program to parents, grandparents, teachers, after school programs, or anyone who may be concerned about what our children need know about manners and etiquette. Lisa’s Manners To Go is a great product, and it is a joy working with her! ~ Lindafaye N. Etiquette Consultant

It was truly an honor to be trained by someone of your caliber and experience, who was willing to share “everything you know, do, and use” with me. I would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to teach children’s etiquette! ~ Sandra E. Etiquette Consultant
