Thursday, April 26th is Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day. This year’s theme is “Work In Progress”. The Foundation started this program 20 years ago to help kids learn about the workplace, give them a taste of what their parent actually does in a day’s work and give them a glimpse into what their future might hold and what opportunities are out there.
It gives children a look into the working world and shows them how adults balance work with family and other aspects of their life. Whether you work in or outside the home, it’s a chance to share an important part of your life. Kids love going to work with their parents! It’s out of the ordinary and they get a kick out of seeing us in their ‘alternate environment’. They have a blast and they certainly benefit from the enriching learning experience. It’s special for mom and dad too. So have your child or grandchild, niece, the child of a friend spend the day with you at your workplace to learn about what you do, you might just inspire a future career. And you’re sure to have some fun!
