Kids at Work, Safer at Home

​​​​​​​Welcome to the 2020 edition of Take Your Child to Work Day! We have to conduct the workplace visits a bit differently this year, but with the links and resources below, you can still guide your kids through a fascinating day of discovery and inspiration, and help them appreciate all that our state – and state government – have to offer. Enjoy exploring these adventures with your kids!

​And now...a welcome message from Det. Sgt. ​Price and Detective K9 Yachi of the Wisconsin State Capitol Police:​
