Launched in 1994, Take our Kids to Work is a recognized career readiness program in Canada with more than 200,000 students visiting workplaces every year on Take Our Kids to Work Day.
Take our Kids to Work is an annual program in which Grade 9 students spend the day in the workplace of a parent, relative, friend or volunteer experiencing and learning about the world of work. Held on the first Wednesday of November, the program supports career exploration and career readiness among Canadian public school students. Experiencing a “day in the life” of a professional within a workplace allows students to explore the world of work and helps them make informed educational decisions.
If you are hosting or asking another University employee to host a grade nine student at the University of Lethbridge, please discuss the initiative with the Department or Faculty lead. Once approved, please complete the scope and consent and submit the original copy to Campus Safety, Insurance and Risk.
