Take Our Kids to Work is a one-day, job-shadowing experience that provides Grade 9 students with the unique opportunity to learn more about the world of work and understand the challenges people experience on the job. Saskatoon Public Schools participates in this Canada-wide experience that sees Grade 9 students spend the day at work with a parent, friend, relative or volunteer host.
Take Our Kids to Work is a distinctive component of the Middle Years Career Guidance Curriculum that gives students a chance to develop an understanding of your world of work, of what parents and their workplace colleagues are expected to do to earn a living and of the skills that are required. Take Our Kids to Work intends to create a challenging learning and career opportunity for young people, and to show them just how important skills, training and education are to their success.
This year, Take Our Kids to Work takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019.
