Launched in 1994 by The Learning Partnership, Take Our Kids to Work Day is the most recognized career exploration event in Canada. This day promotes experiential learning opportunities for Grade 9 students as they spend the day at the workplace of a parent, relative, friend, or volunteer host. Through Take Our Kids to Work Day, students are able to witness the world of work firsthand, encouraging early career planning, and enabling them to make informed decisions about their future goals and pathway planning. By participating in Take Our Kids to Work Day, students are able to learn about a variety of careers, industries, and sectors.
This year, Take Our Kids to Work Day will be on Wednesday November 6th, 2019. Refer to the Take Our Kids to Work 2019_Parent Guide for information on the this program and the permission form required to participate in this career exploration event.
