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 will take place on Thursday, April 24th, 8:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. 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, are invited to attend a day of learning and fun activities. 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.
To get the children involved in civic engagement, we are asking each child who attends to bring a new children's/adolescents book (English or Bilingual: English/Spanish) to be donated to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, an organization with which Drexel has a partnership.
