Inspire a Child to Dream Day
The annual Inspire a Child to Dream Day, which is modeled after the national “Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work®” program was held on April 25th, 8:00 am - 2:30 pm. Children and relatives between the ages of 7 and 14 of Drexel University, faculty and professional staff members, including College of Medicine and Academy of Natural Sciences, were invited to attend a day of learning and fun activities. This year's theme is "Happy Helpers." Breakfast and lunch is provided for all participating children. The day will be divided into sessions, lasting 45 minutes each. Children are broken up into groups according to age.
We would like to extend a huge thanks to the departments and divisions who hosted sessions and volunteered throughout the day's activities, including the Drexel Men's and Women's Basketball teams.
Children's Book Drive
To get the children involved in civic engagement, each child who attends was asked to 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.
Over 400 books were collected for the St. Chris patients!
