Becoming a Cotillionette

The process of becoming a Cotillionette begins with the completion of the Debutante Profile and submission to the Los Angeles Links’ Cotillionette Chairperson. Each debutante must be sponsored by a member of the Los Angeles Chapter of Links and must be a junior or senior in high school. The season begins with the Parent Information Meeting.

Each family receives the Cotillion Handbook at the parent meeting. The handbook provides information and guidance useful during the Cotillion season. Each Cotillionette is required to donate a minimum of 75 hours of volunteer service to a community service agency. Additionally, Cotillionettes participate in a variety of activities planned by the Services to Youth Committee.

Most of these activities are held during the summer months and may include the following activities:

  • CPR Training
  • Dining Etiquette
  • Cultural Awareness Activities such as theatrical performances
  • Self-Esteem Workshops
  • Health and Fitness Education
  • Entrepreneur Workshop
  • College Preparation Workshop
  • Public Speaking and Global Exposure Workshop
  • Legal Savvy Workshops
  • Social Bonding Activities
