Provide a summary of the project or program:
           Sweat-n-Stilettos' mission is to provide support for women and young ladies, psychically, socially, spiritually, and economically. Funds are being requested to support our community outreach etiquette program. There is a significant decline in the morals and dignity of the young ladies in this era, and my company provides a social and financial etiquette program to offset the negative influence of the media on the morals of young ladies. Presently this program is provided annually to a limited amount of young ladies, but with this funding we will be able to open up 100 more slots. This etiquette program is significant because it allows girls- that otherwise would not be offered opportunities to learn social and economic etiquette- the opportunity to be acclimated to the norms of society. Participants, both adult and teens, receive lessons on finances, self-motivation, self- esteem, charity, self-presentation, and pride. Studies show that economies with a higher population of sophisticated women have a more stable gross domestic product, more jobs, and a lower crime rate. These studies prove that women are the foundation of the economy. Sweat-n-Stilettos etiquette prepares females ranging in age from 13 to 35 for this responsibility to our society. Our program is unique because we create situations that allow the participants to have hands on experiences and opportunities to display what they have learned. They are taught by the best possible educators in each field of preparation. This program is beneficial to everyone in the city and everyone that comes into contact with these young ladies. Pleasant citizens make for a pleasant society...and vice versa.
