Social Etiquette Workshops Become A Growing Market
Blacks and Other Minorities Find Entrepreneurship Opportunities A Means To Supplement Income
Dallas, TX (BlackNews.com) - As the economy continues its sluggish recovery, and with unemployment topping 9.7%, many people, especially minorities, have had to find alternative means to support themselves. Etiquette and social graces workshops specifically geared to the young people living in urban communities have been quietly on the rise as the lure of additional income and becoming your own boss takes root with women and men across the nation.
NAUEP, National Association of Urban Etiquette Professionals, is a newly launched company that has taken over the etiquette divisions of UrbanGirlz Inc. and UrbanGentz Inc. of Urban Girlz national. "NAUEP has experienced a 50% rise in applications for etiquette certifications," says Trenette Wilson, President of NAUEP. "We have seen this type of phenomenal growth because we serve a dual purpose - we service a real need in the community of fostering and nurturing self esteem through social etiquette training and we help provide a means of earning additional income."
Continued double digit unemployment in the minority sector, has propelled NAUEP into a new spotlight. "We are decreeing of call-to-action through the 'urban etiquette initiative', by encouraging adult leaders in our community to help teens open their minds to social etiquette skills."
No longer set to old and out dated practices, this modern day etiquette approach includes online etiquette, proper dining skills, dance etiquette, 'developing your urban swag' classes which are classes specifically designed for urban males. "Our urban youth are sorely lacking basic skills that are often influential points when interviewing, job seeking and even dating," continued Ms. Wilson.
With a training certificate by national in hand, new etiquette instructors are now able to recruit teens to attend classes and workshops right in their own neighborhood. Each child who participates pays a fee that is paid directly to the instructor.
"NAUEP proves to be a vital source of information, resources and guidance for the new and experienced instructor. We support and help our instructors network with others to learn key skills to grow their business," said Ms. Wilson.
