Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day 2022 logoCelebrating 30 years of creating new horizons!!  Here are some tips for planning the day, activity center page, and information for workplace coordinators, parents and teachers! Resources

Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® program goes beyond the average practice of “shadowing” an adult. Exposing children to what a parent or mentor does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities of work and family life, providing boys and girls a chance to share how they envision the future, and allowing them to begin steps toward their goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success.

Participants are encouraged to post videos, photos, and stories about how they have been influenced in their professional roles, as well as post conversations with children on topics such as Education Planning, Self Discovery and Bullying Prevention.

By bringing children together, we all contribute to creating a more equitable world—at home, at school, and in the workplace. This year, we are celebrating the opportunities that kids will discover and those for parents, mentors, and the community to be involved in this unique educational experience.
