Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day Recap

More than 150 children explored career options and discovered new possibilities for their futures.

USF Tampa hosted its sixth annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day event on Thursday, April 24. The event provided the more than 150 children (ages 8 - 18) of USF faculty and staff employees with an opportunity to explore career options and to discover new possibilities for their futures. They had an opportunity to see a broad range of career fields, interact and engage with professionals in various positions, and learn how they can pursue their professional aspirations to be all that they can be. The event began in the Marshall Center Ballroom but encompassed on-site departmental tours around campus that were designed to showcase various careers in different fields.

Hosted by Human Resources and Administrative Services, the career presentations and behind-the-scenes tours created a day of eye-opening experiences for the children who went home more aware of a variety of career possibilities. Special thanks to all the volunteer chaperones and to the departments throughout campus who hosted tours and presentations; their contributions to this event made it a memorable one.
