Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

Posted by White House on April 13, 2015

We want you to take OUR daughters and sons to work on Thursday, April 23.

Each year, an estimated 3.5 million employers participate in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. If just a small portion of these employers open their doors to youth in their communities, that could generate hands-on, career exploration experiences for many young people throughout the country who would not otherwise have this opportunity.

President Obama announced that the White House and federal agencies are celebrating Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. This is a joint effort between the White House Council on Women and Girls and My Brother’s Keeper Initiative to help young people better understand the connection between what they learn in the classroom and future careers.

Consider this a great opportunity to make a meaningful impact on a child’s future. We encourage you and other employers to join the White House in welcoming youth beyond the children of your own employees to visit your place of work on this day. Invite them to spend the day with you. Show them what you do every day – and tell them that, with hard work and determination, they can do it too.
