Grade 9s and parents mark your calendars!  Wednesday, November 2, 2016 is Take Our Kids to Work Day!

On the first Wednesday of every November Grade 9 students get to spend the day in the workplace of a parent, relative, friend or volunteer experiencing and learning about the world of work as they begin to explore possible career paths.

Take Our Kids to WorkTM is an annual 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. Employers who register for this program are eligible to apply for the Canada's Outstanding Employers Award. Take Our Kids to Work™ is our signature program which began in 1994 in the Greater Toronto area. Today, students across Canada, from Nunavut to Newfoundland participate in the program.

Stay tuned through the Career Centre for information regarding consent forms and alternate activities for students unable or who do not wish to participate.
