The report card is in! Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day, administered by the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Foundation, gives girls and boys a unique educational opportunity that expands the walls of the classroom and helps girls and boys reach their full potential at school and in their future work and family lives. By providing your students with a unique learning experience that incorporates practical applications of their studies (such as math, English, and science), and encouraging them to take an active role in their education, this program can enhance your students’ interests and approach to learning.
The Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Foundation wants to hear from educators about their Day. Whether you are a coordinator at a college or a school educator who participates in the Day, please send us any agendas, activities/curriculum, or photos you have developed and we may feature them on our website.
