Take Your Child to Work Day Thursday, April 25, 2019

Group of Children with AU's Clawed

The Office of Human Resources is sponsoring Take Your Child to Work Day on April 25, for dependent children ages 8-18. Fun and educational activities are planned to introduce your child to your work and to AU.

Children will be grouped by grade level (elementary, middle, and high school) and will have several age appropriate activities to choose from. Registration is required as space is limited. Upon registration, parents will be also required to sign a Likeness Image Release Form and Liability Waiver.

We're collecting donations for the AU Food Pantry – The Market! Bring a non-perishable food item and join The Market Tour in the afternoon. Please note that all afternoon events are optional and require parent participation.

For more information or additional questions, please email Andie Rowe at arowe@american.edu.
