TAKE OUR DAUGHTERS AND SONS TO WORK

Work-based Learning Opportunities For Youth

Each year, an estimated 3.5 million employers participate in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. If just a small portion of these employers open their doors to youth in their communities, that could generate hands-on, career exploration experiences for many young people throughout the country who would not otherwise have this opportunity.

Since 1993 when the Ms. Foundation for Women established Take Our Daughters to Work Day, and later expanded the event to include boys in 2003, the goal of this effort has always been to help all of our nation’s daughters and sons to achieve brighter futures.

We also know that work-based learning experiences help young people to better understand the connection between what they learn in the classroom and future careers. In a national survey of youth who dropped out of high school, approximately four out of five respondents said that opportunities for real-world learning would have improved their chances of graduating.

We’re also encouraging other employers to expand their Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day programs.

If you're interested in expanding your Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day program, please consider contacting your local school system, Volunteer To Serve, and other social service organizations to help identify youth participants in your community, then share your plans with us using our email contact@VolunteerToServe.org
