Take Your Youth To Work Day

Every year, the U.S. Census Bureau observes "Take Our Youth to Work Day" on the fourth Thursday in April. Nationally, this day is known as "Take Your Daughters to Work Day." Over the years, employees have asked us to open our doors to all children. Each school district handles this day differently. Please take this opportunity to arrange with your school to bring students who will benefit from our programs. We hope this day inspires and motivates them to strive for their own meaningful careers. The divisions develop displays and tours that help the children to understand the day-to-day business of the Census Bureau. The participation age limit for the children is between the ages of 7 and 18 years old.
