24th Annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Foundation Event Scheduled for April 27

TODASTW_logo_largeOn April 27 we’re trading in our black, ballpoint pens for crayons and high heels for sneakers.


Why?  Because it’s the 24th annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day (TODASTW) Foundation’s “Count On Me!” Day.  TODASTW is a national, public education program that connects what children learn at school with the actual working world.  ComTec President and CEO Mike Vertolli has again extended personal invitations to the ComTec Family to bring their school-age children to our Vineland headquarters for this special day of mentoring.


“Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is a family-friendly day to encourage our youth to dream about their work, family, and community lives,” said Vertolli.  “Plus, we’ll share some ideas on how girls and boys can discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life.”


Vertolli continued, “This inspiring, informative family event is by far one of our favorites here at ComTec. It’s not only a big boost to employee morale, but it’s wonderful to see the kids’ faces light up when they see what Mom or Dad does.”


“Count On Me!” (#COUNTONME!) is this year’s theme.  It’s based on the definition of dependability, and that one can count on someone or something to not let him/her down.  As explained on www.daughtersandsonstowork.org, “This is an invaluable character trait for any workplace to be successful!”




In addition to having fun, we’ve planned role-playing, hands-on activities, teamwork exercises, problem-solving challenges, and interviews on work-life balance and ComTec’s business operations.


Each year, Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Foundation has more than 3 million American workplaces open their doors to over 39 million employees and their children for this occasion.  The Foundation is in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.  To learn more visit www.daughtersandsonstowork.org, email todastw@mindsprings.com, or call Executive Director Carolyn McKecuen at 800-676-7780.
