The Decorum Group Philosophy
The Decorum Group, Inc. is a personal training and development organization providing workshops, community activities and field trips designed to address the social development needs of children ages 6 - 19. Our organization addresses the needs surrounding etiquette, social skills, career planning, mentorship and leadership development. We believe that it is through knowledge that opportunities are created. We want to present the social skills, personal development and leadership training that are often acquired outside the classroom. We believe that lack of protocol and leadership skills often creates barriers to personal achievement. We intent to provide a medium that fills the gap of knowledge between text books and success. By providing the tools and techniques required to transition into adulthood, our children will be empowered to take advantage of opportunities availed to those whose thought processes and choices support a future that includes a high quality of life. The mission of The Decorum Group, Inc, is to promote academic achievement, self-esteem and appropriate social conduct as well as personal development plans for at-risk children, and teens, residing at home or in foster care. As our programs work to develop first-class, first impressions, we will also foster confidence building with the intention of developing leaders for our community. We will do this by providing the knowledge, skills, tools and resources to transition our children into adulthood with the options available to make informed, caring and meaningful choices that will create and sustain a stable and independent lifestyle. By providing this etiquette, personal development, leadership and mentoring programs we hope to alleviate some of the ills facing our society such as teen pregnancy, juvenile delinquency, low academic achievement levels, unemployment and homelessness.
