Inspire a Child to Dream Day
Drexel's annual Inspire a Child to Dream Day, which is modeled after the national “Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work®” program, will take place on April 23 from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Children and relatives between the ages of 6 and 13 of Drexel University faculty and professional staff members, including the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, will be invited to attend a day of learning and fun activities. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all participating children and volunteers. The day will be divided into sessions lasting 45 minutes each. Children will be grouped according to age for the activities.

To get the children involved in civic engagement, we are asking that each child who attends bring a new children's book (English or bilingual, English/Spanish) to be donated to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, an organization with which Drexel has a partnership.
The Drexel Community is also welcome to participate in the book drive.
Host a Breakout Session
