“A lot of them don’t have driver’s license, you know. We tell them go get a job, but if they don’t have the documentation to get the job then we’re setting them up for failure. So I’m trying to arm them with the life skills necessary and make sure that we… you know, it’s not holding their hands but it’s just making sure that we empower them. We let them know that you have a stake in this and you can do better,” Judge Givens-Davis said.
The dining etiquette workshop, which will be held at the county courthouse will teach students basic dining behavior and skills, utensil identification and business conversation while dining.
"As more and more companies consider soft skills in their hiring decisions, NAUEP is proud to partner with Judge Givens-Davis to equip underserved communities with skills that will help them thrive in a professional setting," said NAUEP founder and award-winning author of The Code: Etiquette Life Hacks for Teens, Trenette Wilson (Lady T).
