Jamaican Women of Florida (JWOF) Participates in Take Your Child to Work Day – Broward 2014, April 17th, 2014

Jamaican Women of Florida under the leadership of their Mentorship Committee Chair, Georgia Robinson, Esq. will be participating in the annual Take Your Child To Work Day in Broward County on April 17, 2014.
What started as a National Take Your Daughter to Work Day 21 years ago has evolved into taking your child to work.  The national day this year will be April 24, however Broward County participates on April 17th due to the school calendar. The program asks volunteers to take a child to work on the specified day to expose the children to professionals in their environment and to show what the value of an education can be in a real-life setting.
This year several JWOF volunteers have signed up to participate in the TYCTW Day to expose young people whose parents may not be professionals, or who may want to see a different professional at work.
JWOF seeks young people currently enrolled in high school ages 14 -18 to contact the organization to participate in the program and be paired with a mentor for the day. Current mentors are librarians, attorneys and public relations professionals.  Deadline for enrollment in this year’s program is April 11, 2014. Parents and teens are encouraged to visit www.daughtersandsonstowork.org to get the complete history of this program.
If you wish to participate, please email Georgia Robinson at [email protected] or [email protected] to enroll. This could be the beginning of a meaningful mentorship relationship.
Jamaican Women of Florida celebrates their first anniversary on April 19, 2014 with a Brunch and the launch of their “Powerful Women…Next Generation” scholarship at the Broward Convention Center and celebrates the TYCTW day as part of practicing what they preach, “Mentoring the next generation”.
