Mayor Tim Keller Celebrates Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

The City Observance Connects Albuquerque Kids to Public Service.

Albuquerque, N.M – Mayor Tim Keller, today, celebrated the 25th annual “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day” as a way to promote public service and the many opportunities to make a difference in the City of Albuquerque. This year’s theme, “Service Force: Agents of Positive Change” is designed to inspire kids to envision a future for themselves in a workplace where everyone is welcomed. 

This commemorative day is part of a national public education program that connects what children learn at school with real-life work experiences. The program seeks to encourage kids across the country to dream big about their family, work, and community.

“The call to service comes in many forms and can start with kids seeing all of the ways they can make a difference in their city,” stated Mayor Keller. “By coming together as one Albuquerque, we can break down barriers for our kids and their futures. We are excited to see each of you throughout the city departments, learning about your community and your government.”

As the father of two young children, Mayor Keller has championed family-friendly policies to build a stronger city that supports kids and families.
