Hyster-Yale volunteers lead etiquette class for Boys & Girls Club members

Twenty women from Hyster-Yale Group hosted an etiquette class at the Hilton Greenville for 13 Boys & Girls Club members from the Grady-White Boats/E.R. Lewis Family Unit.

The Girls Mentoring Program is funded by Hyster-Yale’s Women’s Network. The program has been providing mentors to middle school girls for more than three years.

The etiquette lesson included the dos and don’ts of what to talk about during a formal dinner, how to use different flatware, and proper ways to ask for items on the table. Members also learned how and where to place their napkins and used utensils when done eating so the wait staff knows to clear their plates.

“We have about 20 Hyster-Yale Group volunteers who support the program with ideas, event planning, and mentoring the girls,” said Nancy Pinto, Girls Mentoring Program leader. “Our purpose is to share things we wished someone had shared with us when we were their age.”

The goal of the program is to provide an event that is fun but educational. The leaders strive to develop relationships with the girls, provide role models for them, and expose them to environments and situations that will plant seeds for growth.

The investment the volunteers have made in the girls has helped them develop their leadership skills as they work together to plan the events.

“They are learning information and skills along with the girls during some of the events, Pinto said. “Being a part of this program has been an enriching experience for the Hyster-Yale Group women as well as making a difference in the girl’s lives.”

The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. There are 17 Clubs throughout Pitt, Beaufort, Lenoir, Martin, Greene, Carteret, and Craven Counties serving approximately 2,000 members daily.

Club programs focus on academic success, good character & citizenship, and healthy lifestyles with an over-arching goal of building strong children and communities. For more information, visit the clubs online at www.bgccp.com or call 355-2345.
