Campus offices and classrooms will fill with the girls and boys of UO families April 25 as the university celebrates “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.”

Under the theme “Work in Progress,” nine- to 13-year-old girls and boys of UO families will follow parents through the day and participate in a variety of organized activities. The event is part of a national program to inspire girls and boys to begin thinking about their futures and introduce them to career opportunities.

Children will observe a parent's work, whether in a classroom, laboratory, studio or office.

“It’s never too early to start encouraging youth to have an active imagination, to set goals and to take more control of their future,” said Work-Life Resources Director Karen Logvin.

Pre-registration and parent permission/liability waiver forms are required for all organized activities and the Welcome Morning Kick-Off.
