The Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day THEME for 2016

It is with Pride and Optimism that we look forward to moving Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® into a new era, working with youth all yearlong through an engaging, new web presence and the integration of STEM education. We have been busy developing new partnerships in order to bring new and exciting additions to the annual program. We look forward to working together this 23rd year with over 40 million youth and adult participants, in over 3 million workplaces in the U.S. alone and over 200 countries abroad.

The theme for 2016 is “Sparking Aha! Moments”. Be sure to add your name to our email list to keep up on all of the latest information.

Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day 2016 Theme

a·ha mo·ment

noun; a moment of sudden insight or discovery.

“it was one of those aha moments, when you know you have to risk it all”

Sparking Aha! Moments represents the greatness of imagination and new ideas. We want to inspire our youth to look to tomorrow with excitement and vigor. We can all do this by sharing those moments of discovery that lead us to choose specific careers, motivated us to make positive life changes and moved us to be leaders in our communities. This will encourage our youth to dream big and work hard.

We want to thank those supporters who volunteer their time to lead committees, plan and implement the Day and work with young people, their parents and guardians as well as their educators to provide this time-honored tradition. And, if this is your first time participating, we welcome you in joining us as we celebrate the Day on Thursday, April 28, 2016.
