Many young girls are not taught how to behave in a lady-like manner. In too many instances they are also not being challenged to dream big and step outside of the conformities of what they see on television. Through our  Mind Your Manners Etiquette Program, we equip girls and young women with social graces and help them to realize that proper etiquette often equates to their competence. Harvard University Stanford Research Institute and Carnegie Foundation states that "85% of our career success depends on social skills."
