Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day


Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day is a registered trademark of the Ms. Foundation for Women. This day is an effort to empower young girls and boys ages nine to fifteen by exposing them to positive role models in the world of work. Also the day is designed to focus on girls' and boys' ideals, needs, and dreams – and help ensure that girls and sons remain CONFIDENT, STRONG, and IN SCHOOL throughout their teen years. The Coalition has been participating in this annual national event since 1996. The Coalition coordinates a partnership with a middle school in the Jackson Public School District and Jackson State University (JSU) where JSU departments agree to "adopt a daughter or a son for a day."
