The GEM Curriculum

All of GEM’s classes provide instruction aimed at developing respectful relationships and a habit of good manners. Our curriculum is designed to develop a sense of competence and esteem in our students as they learn to navigate real social expectations. 


  • Dining Etiquette

    Manners at mealtime are the cornerstone of the GEM program. Table manners will be practiced in formal and informal settings at every class while sharing a meal. Proper utensil use and setting and clearing a table will also be practiced.

  • First Impressions

    Greetings, punctuality, hand shaking, appropriate dress, poise, words of courtesy, and posture.

  • Making Conversation

    Polite conversation skills will be role played and practiced at every class.
