"Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" traditionally falls on the fourth Thursday of every April. This means that the actual date it is observed changes each year.

While it is not classified as a holiday, "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" is actually a nonprofit educational program that began in the United States in 1993. As of 2014, more than 37 million people throughout the country participate by bringing their school-aged children to work with them on the designated day. Canadians also participate in the program, but on a different date. The day is generally observed in Canada in the month of November.
