Escort Application Process
THE SELECTION PROCESS FOR ESCORTS
The escorts to the Alpha Charter Guild Debutantes will be outstanding young men of the community, nominated by Guild members. Generally, the young men must be between the ages of 18 and 25 and will go through a thorough interview process, receive etiquette training and waltz instruction.
Just as the Alpha Charter Guild does not discriminate in its selection process of Debutantes, neither does it discriminate in its selection process of escorts based on race, religion, creed or nationality.
A Debutante and escort will be paired for the Hourglass Ball based solely on one factor – height. The escort must be taller than the Debutante when she is wearing two-inch heels. All assignments will be based on a random matching of escort height to Debutante height.
It is imperative that each Debutante and her family understand that the Alpha Charter Guild does not discriminate in assigning escorts to Debutantes. The Alpha Charter Guild will not assign, pair or place Debutantes and escorts on the basis of race, religion, creed or nationality.
