Take Our Daughters & Sons To Work® Day occurs in the US on the 4th Thursday in April. This year it takes place on April 27th and the theme is #COUNTONME. The idea is that parents and guardians take their kids work to expose them to careers held by them and their coworkers and focuses on expanding their future opportunities. When done well, kids return to the classroom full of cool stories about the people they met and the things they learned about themselves.
Last year Couragion joined forces with Hosting.com – a technology company that provides always-on compliant cloud solutions empowering 2000+ global clients. The program included a datacenter tour, sessions on internet safety, a coding academy, and a career exploration workshop. Hosting.com gave the Couragion app as a gift to every daughter and son in attendance to expand their career planning and readiness. It was great to see the kid’s comments inside the application about their experience that day – here are a few for your enjoyment:
“I thought it was like telling my future.”
“I think that this industry would help me learn a lot and would also allow me to support a family with the amount of money I would make.”
“I have no questions but must say that is the best sounding job other than an engineer.”
