Workforce development for all – April 25

Join the Irrigation Foundation in supporting Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day this year! The date for this nationwide program is April 25, and the Foundation wants the irrigation industry to get involved.

This year’s theme is, workforce development for all. Inspire the next generation by inviting them to participate in your daily work schedule. Young people will gain insight about how each role within an organization contributes to the overall success for staff, customers and communities they serve. Give kids on-the-job experience and watch them shape the workforce of tomorrow.

No matter what sector of the industry you work in, this annual event is a great way to introduce the next generation to the irrigation industry. Show your children — and your co-workers’ children — what you do all day and the importance of irrigation and using it efficiently.

This national public education program connects what children are learning at school with the actual working world. It shows them the importance of their education, helps them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, allows them to share how they envision their future, and gives them a hands-on and interactive environment to begin steps toward their end goals.
