Take Kids to Work Day 2

Electricity with Jeff StevensAlfred State College employees brought their children to the workplace during the annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Day, April 26. Employees were invited to bring not only daughters and sons, but also grandchildren, nieces, and nephews between the ages of nine and 15. Participants took part in interactive learning activities, including career exploration; community service; job shadowing with the parent, grandparent, aunt, or uncle; a campus tour; and some fun and games. A complimentary lunch was provided for the children by ACES, the colleges dining and vending corporation. Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Day is designed to expand opportunities for girls and boys, expose them to what adults in their lives do during the work day, show them the value of their education, and give them an opportunity to share how they envision their future. Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Day program was founded by the Ms. Foundation for Women to create an opportunity for girls and boys to share and communicate their expectations for the future.
