Grade 9 students across Canada spent a day in the life of various professionals yesterday, as part of The Learning Partnership’s Take Our Kids to Work Day. Hundreds of thousands of students across Canada got an early look into the world of work, as they spent the day job-shadowing professionals across a range of organizations.
Since 1994, thanks to the ongoing support of national program partner Scotiabank, Take Our Kids to Work Day has given students a chance to explore a range of career possibilities, while giving businesses an opportunity to share knowledge and advice around education, career choices and relevant skills required in today's workplace. The Learning Partnership would like to thank all participating students, organizations and school boards for making Take Our Kids to Work Day 2017 an outstanding success!
