April 23 has been earmarked as "Take Our Daughters to Work Day" by the YWCA of the Tonawandas.
Arlie Kingsley, YWCA director of enrichment programming, said the project is
sponsored by the YWCA of the Tonawandas and Niagara Frontier and area businesses as part of a national public education campaign "to encourage adults to sponsor girls in grades four through 12 in their workplaces."
She said sponsorship allows the girls the opportunity to learn about different career options and work expectations. She said "Their experience at work will help strengthen their self-awareness and confidence."
