The National Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Foundation Executive Director issued this statement:
“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.”
The planning committee is worked hard to put together informative, fun, engaging and interactive activities for our children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc. in all age groups (Kindergarten through High School).
Planning Committee Members (Julie Myrah, Silvia Dayak, Jaycee Azevedo, Sam Sherman, Joy Pinne and Stacy Thurling).
