Take Our Kids to Work™ is The Learning Partnership’s signature program involving more than 250,000 Grade 9, Senior 1 (Manitoba) and Secondary III (Quebec) students and at least 75,000 businesses and organizations across Canada annually. The Learning Partnership began running this program in 1994 in Ontario and it has since grown to include a number of elements that are now delivered nationwide.
On the first Wednesday of November every year, The Learning Partnership holds Take Our Kids to Work™ day, where students spend the day in the workplace of a parent, relative, or friend. In 2012 Take Our Kids to Work day falls on Wednesday, November 7.
For students, it’s more than a fun day. It’s an opportunity to:• Understand the importance of staying in school by learning first-hand what skills are required in today’s workplace.• Develop an appreciation for their parents’ careers and roles in supporting their families.• Start exploring career options in a practical way and gain a better understanding of just how many career choices are open to them.
For parents, it’s helping prepare your child for the future. You can:• Participate in a shared experience with your child.• Begin a career dialogue based on actual experiences.• Enrich your child’s experience with discussions before, during and after the workplace visit.
