We offer 3-day workshops for budding instructors who want to run social interaction and communication skills (often referred to as modern day manners and etiquette programs) for children and young adults in their own communities. During these workshops, we train prospective instructors in the socialsklz:-) methodology and curriculum, both created by Faye de Muyshondt, which have been implemented in various schools and organizations across the Tri- State Area (NY/ NJ/ CT). The first two days of the workshop focus on what is taught in programs, as we teach and review our essential workshop lesson plans. The third day is spent student teaching under the tutelage of founder, Faye de Muyshondt, with a portion of the day utilized as a question and answer session with de Muyshondt.
Graduates will receive official certification from socialsklz:-) that will endorse their abilities to teach first impressions, active listening and communication skills, mealtime etiquette, public interaction skills, making introductions, and attending and hosting play dates/ parties. Certification will also cover the teaching of politely accepting gifts that one might not necessarily like, behavior in the classroom, and of course, the regular use of courtesy words. Additionally, socialsklz:-) certified graduates will learn to impart the value of daily thoughtfulness, respect, gratitude, and empathy to their future students by way of lessons and in-class discussions.
