inspire 2 aspire
2024 event theme and logo
This year’s Take Our daughters and Sons Theme is “Inspire 2 Aspire” and this year’s logo is shown below.
This year’s theme is about instilling a mindset that children can choose their own future. It highlights the collaborative development of youth, preparing them to navigate the evolving world of work. Through this campaign, we aim to create a ripple effect, where the inspiration gained by the youth transforms into a force for positive change, shaping a more inclusive, innovative, and empowered workforce.
“Inspire 2 Aspire” embodies the mission and objectives of both the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Foundation (TODASTWD) and Junior Achievement (JA). The core message revolves around the idea that each child has the potential to be an inspiration in their own right. By participating in programs that offer a glimpse into various careers and industries, they not only gain valuable insights but also become catalysts for positive change. It promotes diversity, encouraging youth to explore different paths and envision a future where their unique strengths contribute to a harmonious and dynamic workplace.
Our 2024 “Inspire 2 Aspire” logo artwork is available for you to create your own shirts and giveaways for the day. All we ask is for a $2 donation per imprint. You can download the Usage Release form here and it contains additional information. We are a non-profit Foundation and rely on your generous donations to keep this important program alive.

Congratulations to all on this wonderful way to show our children the workplace and to learn about career options.
