An Opportunity for Learning Outside The ClassroomApril 1, 2008
It started in 1993 as an idea to expose teenage girls to the workplace, observe career options and build self confidence. From that year until 2002, 71 million American adults participated in the Ms. Foundation for Women's Take Our Daughters To Work Day. In 2003, the program evolved to include boys, as Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, observed on the fourth Thursday in April. The chance for kids to see what their parents actually do at the workplace falls on April 24th this year.
