The University of Oregon is hosting a campus event that provides an opportunity for employees to share their workplace and the university environment with their children. This year’s Take Our Children to Work event is Thursday, April 25, in the Ford Alumni Center’s Giustina Ballroom.
The UO event creates an experience for participants that connects educational pursuit with occupational opportunity. Participants, along with their accompanying adult, engage in multiple activities led by UO program representatives to explore the university and future opportunities.
The event focuses on a morning session, from 8 a.m. to noon, with everyone participating in the same experience through an organized event. In the afternoon, participants can choose to explore a variety of hands-on opportunities across campus.
“This year’s national theme is ‘Workforce Development For All,’” said Jen Mirabile, senior HR programs coordinator. “The kids will engage in fun activities that help them better understand the skills they need to be a positive contributor to a workforce.”
Registration is now open with a deadline of April 19. Registration instructions and an event schedule are available on the Take our Children to Work Day webpage.
