Middle School Curriculum

In today’s ever interconnected world, young people need an “interpersonal currency” that is widely accepted and easy to use. Manners To Go puts the etiquette of our time and culture in their pockets, and in doing so, opens doors of friendship and opportunity. Some young students have been shown these manners before by their parents, teachers and leaders, but by actually making it a formal lesson in Manners To Go”, the whole notion of shaking hands or formal introductions becomes demystified. Even a shy preadolescent will gain confidence when she or he is taught why and how to shake hands or make an introduction. For middle and high schoolers on the threshold of adulthood, Manners To Go gives them the playbook of how to be treated seriously by acting maturely through manners. By making it fun, they will take this “interpersonal currency” wherever they go and won’t leave home without it.

I want to thank you for your time and efforts yesterday. Your presentations were absolutely fantastic. The young ladies were engaged and the staff cannot stop talking about both presentations and how much they learned. I hope in the future we could work together again and put on another successful women’s conference for a new bunch of ninth grade young ladies. I cannot thank you enough for all you did. I hope more schools will be able to experience what we experienced yesterday. Heidi Roman

Manners To Go offered my special needs students a fun and interactive way to enhance their social skills. Rather than paper and pencil, they were able to extend their learning and practice real world scenarios. They really loved the handshake lesson and comparing the proper versus improper way to shake. They were actually excited about doing their homework, shaking hands with family, teachers or friends. Heather- Neri Prudhome
