    Take Your Kids to Work Day

    Take Our Kids to Work Day – Wednesday, November 5, 2014

    Take Our Kids to WorkTM is an annual national program in which Grade 9 (or equivalent) students are hosted by parents, friends, relatives and volunteers at workplaces across the country every November. The program supports career development by helping students connect school, the world of work, and their own futures.  More than 250,00 students and 75,000 organizations take part every year across Canada, from Nunavut to Newfoundland participate in the program.

    It is an opportunity for students to explore career options, through:

    • Understanding the importance of staying in school by learning first-hand what skills are required in today’s workplace
    • Thinking about what aspects of their “work day” they liked and what they didn’t
    • Exploring career options in a practical way and gain a better understanding of just how many career choices are open to them
    • By spending a day in the life of a working adult, they develop an appreciation of their parents’ work and motivations

    The more students understand about the jobs of their parents and relatives, the more informed the decisions about their own future career.  For more information, visit the website at www.thelearningpartnership.ca

    All grade 9 students should have received a consent form to be filled out and returned to the counseling department if interested. Extra forms can be printed from the above attachment.
