Take Our Kids to Work Day 2018

Take Our Kids to Work Day 2018
Posted on 11/05/2018

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 is “Take Our Kids to Work Day”.  The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board welcomes and supports this annual country-wide initiative for grade 9 students.  The goal of “Take Our Kids to Work Day” is to start young people thinking about the many choices available to them after high school.  It is an opportunity for them to understand the importance of staying in school by learning first-hand what skills are required in today’s workplace and to start exploring career options in a practical way. Our students have participated in this successful partnering of education and business since the program’s inception in 1994.  We encourage participation from all of our secondary schools. The initiative helps students to develop the characteristics and skills identified in the District’s OCDSB Exit Outcomes.
