Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® program goes beyond the average “shadow” an adult. Exposing girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, and providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future and begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success. Each year, we develop new interactive activities and partnerships that will assist us in taking girls and boys to the future they dream of.
We applaud any effort that helps prepare youth for their future. So many things go into life skills development and this is a unique opportunity for a student to really think about what they want to do – day in day out – when they grow up.
We’d like to remind parents and other important adults that part of developing life skills is helping kids recognize that eating healthily is a lifestyle choice too. Be sure to practice what you preach at home and take your kid for a health lunch during the workday or remember to pack something healthy.
