NFIB’s Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work ®
In a Small Business Environment
April 24, 2014
NFIB’s Young Entrepreneur Foundation has collaborated with the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® program, because of its unique opportunity to bring entrepreneurship education to young people around the country. By providing FREE curriculum, targeted at introducing young people to the idea of entrepreneurship, in a one-day format, current small business owners can encourage the next generation of small business owners.
Why is NFIB participating in Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day?
- To introduce the idea of entrepreneurship and small business ownership as a valid career opportunity.
- To give girls and boys an educational experience outside of school.
- To teach girls and boys the value of entrepreneurial education.
- To demonstrate small business’ commitment to their employees and their communities.
Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® program goes beyond the average “shadow” an adult program. It exposes girls and boys to what a parent, grandparent or mentor in their lives does during the work day and helps them move toward their career goals in a hands-on and interactive environment. Check out the FREE curriculum, and create a day to Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® at your small business.
NFIB’s Young Entrepreneur Foundation has created activities aimed at students between 12-16 years old, to utilize the environment of a small business, instead of a classroom. The lesson plans can be used to fill a full day of entrepreneurial education or you can use specific activities dedicated to the amount of time you have.
