Take Our Daughters and Sons to work Day- Thursday, April 27th, 2017.

Count On Me

Who do you count on? You may look to friends, teammates, family, mentors and teachers to not let you down. And in return, they can count on you to do the same for them!

Being part of a workplace team also involves accepting responsibilities. When each team member acts responsibly, it makes the workplace more successful.

Responsible people take charge of their lives! Make a plan and set goals to develop your talents and skills! We challenge you, on Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day, to show your future workforce that they can #COUNTONME!

Message From Our Executive Director

2016 was a spectacular year, but we expect 2017 will be even better!

Carolyn McKecuenGreetings!

The Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Foundation is delighted to bring you another opportunity to create an enriching educational experience for our nation’s daughters and sons. For over 23 years, individuals, families, organizations, and workplaces have joined in the Day to expand opportunities and transform the lives of millions of girls and boys both nationally and internationally.

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.

By bringing girls and boys together, we will continue to create a more equitable world—at home, at school, in the workplace, and in the community. This year we are celebrating the opportunities that girls and boys will discover and the opportunities for parents, mentors, and the community to continue involvement in this unique educational experience.

I look forward to the 2017 Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day program and celebrating our 24th anniversary!

Warm regards,
