Youth Etiquette/Decorum Classes
So often we hear that the "lack-of" respect is at an all time high with our youth generation. The Youth Etiquette/Decoum Classes are in direct alignment with our Life Skills Training (“LST”) - Life Skills Training provides awareness in etiquette, conflict resolution, team building, leadership development, drug and alcohol (awareness) prevention and peer pressure. Additionally, LST programs improve academic performance, attendance and positive display of behavior; which lead to higher education preparation/acceptance.
Avenues of Excellence developed specific curriculum and training sessions to promote and encourage positive and respectful behavioral patterns.
The Youth Etiquette/Decorum Classes train youth early on social graces, proper etiquette, public protocol and character development.

Father/Daughter (Parent/Mentoring) Program
In 2017, Avenues of Excellence launched its' Father-Daughter Dance Community Event. The purpose of the event is to celebrate fathers, mentors and role-models for being a positive influence in the lives of young girls. Now in its' 3rd year (2019), Avenues of Excellence has launched a full program/initiative to provide educational training sessions and support services to ensure the lines of communication between parent (role model) and daughter are not just established; however, open and honest.
The mission of this event is to instill in young girls the importance of being treated as a young lady, respect, kindness, consideration and validation/strength to be successful in life- that there's nothing impossible.
This event is in direct alignment with Avenues of Excellence Self Awareness Training (“SAT”) - Self Awareness Training provide awareness to each child on how to make conscious decisions, deal with change and feelings (peer pressure) and the importance of knowing self worth. Providing SAT may greatly decrease negative decision making, succumbing to peer pressure and increase the knowledge and appreciation of self, which will contribute to positive academic performance.
The event is held each year at the beautiful historic Mayfair Hotel and Spa in Coconut Grove. Event details may be viewed on our website at avenuesofexcellence.com
