Upcoming Guidance for First Lady Michelle Obama

Wednesday, April 20th

The White House * 11:00AM ET – As part of the White House's annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, the First Lady will meet with, and take questions from, children of Executive Office employees, and young people from Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, SchoolTalk, and the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency.

The White House is also encouraging other employers, including federal agencies, to expand their events by opening their doors to local youth participants, including foster youth, youth with disabilities, and children who may not have a parent with a job that allows them to bring their children to work.  This is a joint effort between the White House Council on Women and Girls and My Brother's Keeper Initiative to provide additional work-based learning opportunities to young people across the country.
