Take Our Children to Work Day 2009
Thursday, April 23rd was Tuesdays' Children Seventh Annual Take Our Children to Work Day.
Nearly 100 children, ages 7-19, participated and were assigned to various corporate hosts including Michael Kors, Blue Man Group, CNN, Time Inc., National Hockey League and many more.
Children enjoyed a full day experience shadowing professionals working in a field in which they have possible career interest.
Companies such as LaBranche Structured Products, LLC provided the children with a tour of the office as well as the New York Stock Exchange.
The kids met employees and saw the day to day happenings. Debra at LaBranche later told us "Jake, Brendon and Matthew were so very well behaved and polite, thanks for sending us such fine boys. I think they had a great day!"
This year twenty three children signed up for the first time! One of the Moms who chaperoned at DKNY said "The people at Donna Karan were so sweet and encouraging to the girls.
They showed and explained to the girls the whole process of designing; they started with the inspiration, to color selection and the actual design." Tuesday's Children thanks all of the wonderful volunteer chaperones, dedicated corporate hosts and excited children who made this day possible.
