Yesterday we saw thousands of students around the country join their parents, relatives and family friends in various workplaces to experience a day in the life of a professional and get a glimpse of the world of work. With the participation of over 1000 organizations in industries ranging from healthcare to aviation and government, Take Our Kids to Work Day 2018 was a resounding success!
Our partnering organizations planned numerous interactive events, including job shadows, office tours, question-answer sessions and group activities. Students rolled up their sleeves to join in hands-on tasks and were able to experience collaboration, creativity and problem-solving in real-world situations. We are grateful to all the participating workplaces for sharing knowledge and advice around education and relevant skills required in today’s economy, while providing students with the opportunity to explore future career paths.
The Learning Partnership is committed to preparing students for a successful future and we thank all participating students, organizations and school boards for an impactful Take Our Kids to Work Day 2018!
