Take Our Kids to Work Day 2021

Take Our Kids to Work Day is a national program where Grade 9 students have the opportunity to job shadow an adult for the day. This program highlights the importance of education, skills development, and training while giving Grade 9 students the opportunity to experience the world of work and the variety of career opportunities available to them.

  • Students can participate in Take Our Kids to Work Day hosted by their parent’s employer (either in-person or virtually)
