RIVERDALE, MD – Parents and youth ages 15-18 are invited to participate in the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Department of Parks and Recreation’s 2019 Teen Cotillion. The recruitment process is underway for high school students in Prince George’s County to participate as Debutants and Beaus.
The Teen Cotillion is a 16-week co-ed comprehensive program. From December 2018 through May 2019, teen participants attend a series of workshops, special events and service learning projects focused on leadership and growth. Career development, etiquette, social skills, and team building activities are all part of the program.
The program, designed to promote positive leadership skills and inspire youth to take the steps needed to attain their dreams, ends with a spring Cotillion ceremony at Martin's Crosswinds. This formal, coming-out gala is where these young adults make their debuts before families and friends.
The application requires participants to write a biographic profile. The profile includes questions about the teen’s interests, in and outside of school, positive influences, and inspiring quotes.
