Manners. Etiquette. For some men, these words don’t belong in the same breath as manliness. For them, etiquette and manners conjure up arbitrary lists of dos and don’ts, a nagging mother, or scenes of artificial formality, complete with images of bowing and scraping, the polishing of monocles, and a bunch of treacly, “How do you dos?” and “No, after yous!”

Even the smartest and most qualified job seekers need to prepare for job interviews. Why, you ask? Interviewing is a learned skill, and there are no second chances to make a great first impression.




Computers and modern technology are taking up a lot of teens' time. While there are some perks to technology, there are also some negative things associated with it. A national survey found that kids between the ages of 8 to 18 are spending an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes per day using entertainment media (e.g., phones, computer, television, mp3 players or other electronic devices). 

Does how you dress say something about who you are? What does what you’re wearing right now say about you? What kind of judgments do you make about people by how they dress?

Do you think we pay too much attention to how people dress? Has anyone ever made fun of you because of what you were wearing?


Most define consent as "a clear and unambiguous agreement, expressed outwardly through mutually understandable words or actions, to engage in a particular activity." Consent can be withdrawn by either party at any point. Consent must be voluntarily given and may not be valid if a person is being subjected to actions or behaviors that elicit emotional, psychological, physical, reputational, financial pressure, threat, intimidation, or fear (coercion or force). Consent to engage in one sexual activity, or past agreement to engage in a particular sexual activity, cannot be presumed to constitute consent to engage in a different sexual activity or to engage again in a sexual activity. Consent cannot be validly given by a person who is incapacitated. 



What is the NCAA Clearinghouse?


The NCAA Clearinghouse is an essential step in becoming eligible to play college sports. Over 180,000 potential college athletes register with the NCAA every year.


If you want to play NCAA college sports and receive a scholarship at the DI or DII level, you will need to register and be cleared by the NCAA. The Eligibility Center is the organization within the NCAA that determines the academic eligibility and amateur status for all NCAA DI and DII athletes.



When deciding what type of post-secondary education to pursue, potential students need to evaluate their career and life goals to decide whether learning a skilled trade or getting a college degree would be the better choice. Learning a skill, such as welding, auto mechanics or construction can lead to a lucrative career, but a college degree has many benefits too. 


A bachelor's degree typically takes four years to complete, although some students, especially if they have to work while attending school, might take more. A certificate from a vocational school usually takes about two years or less to complete. 

Well, do you want to be smart? Are you smart but you try to hide in order to fit in? In your school is smart, corny or nerdy? 


We will discuss this topic at length in our seminars and training. 


It may be corny to you to be smart now. But, it would be advantageous to you to be smart now and exist in your own world instead of trying to fit into someone else's world. 


Most of the 3 percent or so of teens who have been diagnosed with learning disabilities struggle so much in their high school classes that they give up on hopes of college, setting back their job and career prospects, according to statistics compiled by the National Center for Learning Disabilities.

But there are new reasons for hope for anyone with attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, or other common learning challenges. A growing number of colleges, services, and technologies are helping students earn admission to, and diplomas from, college, counselors say.


Our mentoring program will address how to take steps to seeking higher education and overcome the learning deficiency.
