What are the benefits of participating?
The purpose of our Debutante Cotillion community service program is to provide opportunities for young women in areas ranging from etiquette to college preparation. The program is also filled with social activities and community service projects, and the experience will offer opportunities to broaden each participant’s educational, social, and cultural perspectives.
How do I participate?
High school freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors are encouraged to apply to participate in the Debutante Cotillion Community Service program. Debutantes (High School Seniors) and Sub Debutantes (High School Juniors) will have the opportunity to attend workshops and community service projects, culminating with the highly anticipated formal Debutante Cotillion “A Prevue of Celestial Pearls”. Freshman and sophomores are invited to apply to be Hostesses.
