National Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day
April 23, 2020

The 2020 theme will be decided upon October 2019. Please see The Challenge below in order to enter this event. This year’s curriculum will consist of essential workforce building activities that will empower young people to effect positive change within their communities, schools and homes. Youth will learn how to show others that they can be relied upon to which will prompt impactful discussions on the importance of developing workplace skills.

Participating workplaces, school, nonprofits, and families will have the opportunity to reveal their recipe for building and maintaining dependable and productive teams. This will provide young people insight about how each role within an organization contributes to the overall success for staff, customers and the communities they serve.

Message From Our Executive Director


2018 was a phenomenal year and we expect 2019 to be even better!


Thank you for joining us in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the national and international Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day. This year’s theme was dedicated to helping our youth understand the FORCE of their service: on their families, on their communities, on the world.

Whether it is called giving back, paying it forward or being agents of positive change the power to make a difference is unmistakable. With that in mind, please be sure to acknowledge the many volunteers who diligently worked to ensure a great event for the youth in your community. Plans for the 2019 Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day are already underway and we look forward to posting our new theme in the upcoming months. Again, thank you for all that you did to make this year’s “Day” a great success!

Warm regards,
