Join the D.Y.M Inititiative
What is the D.Y.M (Demonstrate Your Manners) Etiquette Initiative?
The D.Y.M Etiquette Initiative is a week long national initiative that increases
awareness around the need for etiquette, which invites schools,
churches, organizations and businesses participating locally during
National Etiquette Week, May 7 - 11, 2012.
Why the D.Y.M Initiative?
The D.Y.M Etiquette Initiative is a fun and easy way to foster the civility
message through activities, materials and recognition. Since its
inception in 1997, National Etiquette Week has worked to increase
awareness around the need for civility and the D.Y.M Etiquette Initiative
honors this tradition on a national level through local participation.
What does the D.Y.M Initiative Provide?
ETIQUETTE WORKSHOPS: Proceeds raised through the national D.Y.M Etiquette Initiative provides
etiquette workshops for young men and women who don't have the opportunity to participate in formal
etiquette training. Funds raised through t-shirt and materials sales will be used to support etiquette
instructors across the country providing these classes.
How can you get involved?
Getting involved locally is easy.
- Become an Etiquette Ambassador and run an official D.Y.M Initiative.
- Purchase a D.Y.M t-shirt or etiquette materials. Wearing your T-shirt during National Etiquette Week
will help spread the word.
- Nominate someone. Recognize someone for demonstrating their manners or for their work
in the field of etiquette.
The D.Y.M Etiquette Initiative is a great way to increase
morale and encourage good will among colleagues,
co-workers and within the classroom.
