The worst way for anyone to find out what they don't know in a social setting is to be in the company of people who do know.
Modelquette was founded in 2006 with the goal of teaching girls and young women etiquette and social skills. We launched our first semester with just 16 students aged 6-17. Since then we have worked with more than 3,000 participants and have expanded our reach to include men and woman.
With families being stretched in all directions and fewer opportunities for them to sit down to meals together many parents just don't have time to focus on proper table manners or basic social skills. This leaves their children at a disadvantage socially. Modelquette hopes to bridge that gap.
To compete effectively in this global economy social skills are mandatory.
After a three-year hiatus we are very excited to relaunch our program!
Modelquette's mission is to help people of all ages, from all walks of life, including youth in under served communities, build their self confidence by enhancing their social skills. From knowing which fork to use in a formal setting and dressing appropriately for an interview to tipping appropriately and RSVPs, these skills impact every area of our lives from personal to professional.
