Take Our Kids to Work – a project of The Learning Partnership – was developed in the early 1990s in recognition of the importance of mentoring young people and the need for career awareness and planning. This program is an important component of our Guidance and Career Studies credit program and occurs the first Wednesday every November. All Grade 9 students will be participating in the Take Our Kids to Work Day program. This mandatory program is an excellent opportunity for our young women to explore the world of work and gain a better understanding of the many career paths available to them.
We rely on you as parents of Grade 9 students to share the workplace experience with your daughter or to match your daughter with a suitable mentor. This person may be another family member, neighbour, friend or colleague. Please discuss with your daughter what her interests are and what workplace visit would be meaningful to her.
